Because there are over 100 types of cancers affecting many different parts of the body, symptoms come in many varieties. Lung cancer, the most common form, might be indicated by coughing, wheezing, chest pain, and shortness of breath. Another widespread form is breast cancer, which can cause a lump or indentation in the breast, as well as a change in the colouration of the nipple or unusual discharge from the nipple.
