I have been coughing. And wheezing for two days the wheeze happens when I’m stationary and breathing deep it’s like a grumbling wheeze almost like something is there but nothing comes out they told me it was asthma but I have had the steroid pills and the breathing treatment and the wheezing is still a strong grumbling wheeze I’m thinking that it’s lung cancer does anyone have an clue my lung test is soon but I’m going to move it sooner does it sound like I have lung cancer?

  1. I would definitely see your primary care doctor and ask if he feels a referral to a pulmonologist is warranted. In the meantime, I am attaching a link below to an article written by our Editorial Team that I hope helps. All the best, Alisa, Team

    1. Hi . Sorry you are having these issues. Your concerns when it comes to anything to do with breathing and the lungs are certainly understandable. I do want to stress that most tests for lung cancer do turn out to be something else and certainly hoping that is the case for you. In addition to the excellent information provided by , I want to provide the link to our sister-site for asthma: This might help to figure out why the doctors headed towards that diagnosis. Also, do not hesitate to ask directly why they believe that to be the case. Please feel free, if you like, to keep us posted on how you are doing. Wishing you the best. Richard ( Team)
