Well, lung cancer, there really aren’t any major symptoms except for coughing, maybe shortness of breath, those sorts of things. And that’s why lung cancer is the number-one deadliest cancer, which people may not know. Normally people don’t find out that they have lung cancer until it’s in stage 4 because there are no symptoms. They may have a shortness of breath and may not think that it’s anything. And, it’s not until it has metastasized somewhere else, like for me, it metastasized to my bones and I had bone pain. So, that’s when I went to the doctor. For somebody else it may have metastasized to their neck and had some kind of, you know, oral cancer.
