Lung cancer: A small pupil in one of your eyes could be a sign of the deadly disease

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a type of primary lung cancer, meaning cells began multiplying uncontrollably in the organ. Making up about 15 percent of cases, could your eyes warn you of the disease?

One surprising sign you might have lung cancer is if you have a small pupil in one of your eyes, testified WebMD.

The affected eye will have a droopy eyelid; this condition is known as Horner syndrome.

Horner syndrome

Due to nerve damage (which can be caused by Pancoast tumours), signs of the condition include:

  • A small pupil (the black circle in the middle of your eye)
  • Pupils that are different sizes
  • A pupil that doesn’t open (dilate) widely or is slow to open in dim light
  • Droopy upper eyelid
  • Lower eyelid that’s slightly raised
  • Sunken or bloodshot eye
  • No sweat on one side of your face
