What complications can occur from lung cancer?

As the tumor grows, it can block the airways and cause shortness of breath. Bleeding can also occur in the airway passages causing hemoptysis or blood coughing. The reduced amounts of oxygen can lead to heart disorders and even heart failure. If the tumor spreads toward the neck and face, patients can develop the Horner Syndrome, a condition that affects the nerves. Pain is usually present if cancer spreads to bones, as well as nausea or other aches, depending on the affected organ.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
