Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers to be diagnosed in the UK, warned the NHS.

Signs of the disease only tend to reveal themselves once the cancer has spread through the lungs.

One of the key symptoms of lung cancer is noticing a change to your eyelid.

“Common symptoms for lung cancer include cough that persists for more than three weeks, coughing up blood, worsening shortness of breath, chest pain, weight loss,” he said.

“Sometimes, patients present with symptoms from metastatic disease; these include headaches, fits, bone pain or skin lamps.

“In some cases, lung tumours can cause neurological symptoms by compressing nerves.

“This can lead to a drooping eyelid or reduced facial sweating – symptoms many people are surprised can be related to lung cancer.”

Lung cancer symptoms include a cough that won’t go away, coughing up blood, difficulty breathing, and having an ache or pain while breathing.

The outlook for lung cancer isn’t as good as other types of cancer, as the symptoms are usually only spotted in its later stages.

Around 45,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK every year.
