I'm 51 & a smoker.
I've had a cough roughly for 5 months, I'm a smoker, I would normally cough in the morning, then a slight few throughout the day. I started coughing more in the day/evening in the last five months.
I've recently had a chest x-ray, which came back completely clear.
I have no pains, no loss of appetite, no symptoms other than a wheezing cough in the morning (not all the time though).
I do have abit of a runny nose though, I have taken all medicines, sinus medicines and nothing working.
I have an appointment with the doctor on Thursday, for a lung function test to check for COPD.
Could I still have lung cancer if the chest x-ray is clear?
