Lung cancers including NSCLC often produce no symptoms until patients are well into the course of the disease. In some cases, endobronchial NSCLC may produce hemoptysis; other signs and symptoms of NSCLC include cough, bronchial obstruction, and post-obstructive complications such as pneumonitis or pneumonia.

Dyspnea, hoarseness, and dysphagia are signs and symptoms that may be produced by mediastinal cancers; other signs of mediastinal cancers include postprandial coughing, wheezing, stridor, chylothorax, and palpitations.
