    wheezing and fatigue

    Well my mom has been wheezing alot the past few days, very fatigue but says other than that she is feeling ok. Is this typical in advanced lung cancer ?

      It could be but its most likely something else. Even though lung Cancer is diagnosed in more than 225,000 or so Americans every year its still is a small number of people, even smokers who get LC. Smokers even heavy current smokers only get LC at a rate of 15-20%. Non smokers are anywhere from 20-30 %. The rest are former smokers of more than a decade.

      What is now known is that if you have a family of cancer regardless of type you may are predisposed. Get he seen by a well know cancer facility as soon as possible and make sure she gets a low dose CT scan..if there is anything on it then she should have a life broncoscopy done.
