Cancer and Oncology Q 21

Warning signs and symptoms of lung cancer include persistent cough, bloody sputum, dyspnea, and which of the other following symptoms?
    A. Generalized weakness
    B. Recurrent pleural effusion
    C. Dizziness
    D. Hypotension

Correct Answer: B. Recurrent pleural effusion

Option B: If cancer is suspected in the lungs, it can cause fluid accumulation in the pleura called pleural effusion. This fluid build-up takes up space and fills the pleural cavity resulting in the compression of the lungs making it hard for the client to breathe properly.

Options A, C, and D: Dizziness, generalized weakness, and hypotension aren’t typically considered warning signals, but may occur in advanced stages of cancer.
