    RE: Lung cancer symptoms

    Lung cancer appears to be more common among patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Risk factors for lung cancer in IPF include age, greater smoking history, and male gender. Squamous cell lung cancer may be more common in IPF than in the general population. I know a sixty-one-year-old former smoker with IPF newly diagnosed on the basis of CT criteria underwent evaluation for transplant. After recovering to his new baseline he was started on chemotherapy and lung cancer treatments in New York. Over the years multiple case series and cohort studies have sought to answer the question of how commonly lung cancer occurs in patients with IPF.

        Unlike with other gases like carbon monoxide, you won’t have symptoms of radon poisoning right away. Instead, health problems from the exposure, such as lung cancer, show up after many years.


        Lung cancer may start as a nagging cough, shortness of breath, or wheezing that doesn't go away. Other symptoms include coughing up blood, having chest pain, or losing weight without trying. If you notice any of these symptoms, call your doctor.

        There are no routine medical tests that can tell you if you’ve breathed in too much radon. And no treatments will clear it from your body. But if you think you may have been exposed, talk to your doctor about whether you should have tests to check for signs of lung cancer.
