Cancer: Lung Message Board


Cancer: Lung Board Index


Hi.

I'm new to the Board and stumbled across it by accident. I'm extremly worried at the moment as I have been experiencing chest pain and pain in the middle of shoulder blades and what seems like my spine. It is not excruiating pain but a dull ache which is constant and that I am very aware of. I have also had a cough for the past 5 weeks which has slowly diminished (i'm hardly coughing at all now), but was non-productive. I did not cough up any phlegm or blood, but just seemed to linger more than I thought would be normal. I've been to my doctors on three separate occasions, the last visit my Doctor relunctantly (after much arguing by me) sent me for a chest x-ray. I had that a week ago and still have a further week to go to wait for the results. The waiting is killing me and is all I can think about. I've convinced myself that there is something seriously wrong with me. Are the symptoms i'm experiencing typically lung cancer symptoms. I'm 35 years old and a non-smoker, but I use to smoke socially in my mid 20s for a short while. I would appriciate any views anyone has.

I would like to add that I have read the many stories on this board and truly feel for those people and their families who are dealing with cancer.

Many thanks for listening.

Hi SMB2006, I've just registered because I was googling these exact same symptoms. Did you find out what it was?

Hope to hear from you.
