When should I call my doctor for my symptoms of lung cancer?

ANSWER

You get any symptoms that suggest lung disease, especially an ongoing cough, blood-streaked mucus, wheezing, hoarseness, or a lung infection that keeps coming back. You’ll get a thorough checkup, and you may also get X-rays or other tests.
