2. Chest Pains
Chest pains are never a pleasant experience, however, when they affect you to such a degree that breathing, coughing, or laughing amplify the pain, there is a deeper cause that needs to be investigated. It is very important to pay close attention to where the pain is felt and to what time of pain you are experiencing. The cause of the pain you feel in your chest and the associated discomfort is caused through the enlargement of the lymph nodes in the lungs as well as through metastasis to the chest walls, the pleura surrounding the lungs, or the ribs.
While you may not associate chest pains with cancer of any sort, it is an extremely possible situation. Chest pain is a serious symptom that requires the necessary degree of concern should you be experiencing it. Early diagnosis is extremely important where a disease as invasive as cancer is concerned.
