World lung cancer day: On August 1, the world is celebrated in the lung cancer day. Lung cancer is known to claim more lives annually than breast, colon and prostate cancer.
On August 1, the World Lung Cancer Day 2018 is celebrated. Lung cancer is one of the most common cancer worldwide. On World Cancer Day, the idea is to increase awareness about the fact that lung cancer claims more lives than colon, breast, and prostate cancer every year. Lung cancer estimates for approximately 1 out of 5 cancer deaths globally. World lung cancer day is celebrated by members of the American College of Chest Physician and Forum of International Respiratory Society. To raise awareness of lung cancer, both communities work together at grass level. They work towards creating an academic movement where people think better about lung cancer and the treatments available for it.
On this world lung cancer day, we talk about top warning signs that you should be aware of:
1. Never Ending cough :
Cough caused by respiratory infection or cold will go in one or two weeks. But a cough that anchors for a long time indicates lung cancer.
2. Changes in breathing:
If you are feeling less suddenly than breathless or if you breathe easily, then this may be the initial warning signal of lung cancer.
3. Pain in bones:
It can happen in cases where lung cancer has spread to the bones and is giving the body pain and other adjacent areas. This pain usually gets spoiled during the night or at rest on your back. Examine this kind of pain as it may be the initial warning sign of lung cancer.
4. Changes in a cough:
Smokers should pay attention to their chronic cough. If the frequency of cough increases or a cough appears to be more disturbing, or if your cough is bleeding or there is an abnormal amount of mucus – then it can be a warning sign of all lung cancer.
Construction, prevention of inflammation in the airways, can cause a lung or whistle on the lungs to breathe. This may be the initial warning sign of lung cancer.
6. Chest pain:
Pain in the shoulder, neck, chest or back can be an early warning signal for all lung cancer. The pain in the chest may be limited to a specific area or in your chest.
7. Sudden weight loss:
Lack of sudden and unclear weight loss can be a warning sign of lung cancer and many other types of cancer.
8. Swan Voices:
If your voice is getting hoser or deep, it may be the initial warning signal of lung cancer. A simple winter can cause loud sounds. But a tremendous sound that should last for more than two weeks by a doctor should be examined.
