I have been sitting on the internet for days now reading about possible symptoms of lung cancer due to some symptoms I have had. I am 32 and this started about 2 months ago. I have been having chest pain as well as pain between my shoulders in my upper back. I went to the doctor twice and he said it could have been from a bad cold I had which had me coughing alot for a few weeks. Since I was 21 I have smoked a little, probably every two weeks I will have a smoke if I am drinking with friends who smoke. Does anybody think this is lung related? Also how common is lung cancer at age 32?

Does not sound like lung cancer to me. Why did your doctor not give you at the minimum a chest x ray. I think maybe because he did not think it was lung cancer either. Get the answers that you need from your health professionals and then go on and enjoy life.

Hi. The internet is a great place to find information. It is NOT the place to look for diagnosis of a medical condition. I have had lung cancer, a heart attack, and a bad cold. Your symptoms could be from any of those, or maybe they are nothing at all. You definitely need a chest x-ray, so find a doctor who will order one. A visit to a cardiologist would probably be a good idea, also. If nothing is found, follow the advice in the previous post from CHG. Good luck.
