Lung cancer symptoms – why you should never ignore feeling queasy

Lung cancer is one of the most serious types of cancer to be diagnosed, as it’s usually difficult to spot until it has spread to other parts of the body. You could be at risk of the disease if you develop a persistent nauseous feeling, it’s been revealed.

Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers to be diagnosed in the UK, warned the NHS.

Around 45,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK every year.

Signs of the disease only tend to reveal themselves once the cancer has spread through the lungs.

You may be at risk of lung cancer if you’ve developed unexplained nausea, it’s been claimed.

“In its early stages, lung cancer doesn’t typically have symptoms you can see or feel,” it said.

“Later, it often causes coughing, wheezing, and chest pain. But there are other, lesser-known effects that can show up, too – in places you may not expect.

“One or two of every 10 people with cancer develop high calcium levels, a condition called hypercalcemia. Too much calcium in your blood can give you belly aches and make you queasy or constipated. You may not feel like eating and be really thirsty.

“Another hormone-like substance that some tumours make will mess with your kidneys, causing cramps and nausea.”
