If you have
- coughed up blood, and/or
- have a changed or new cough, and/or
- chest, shoulder and neck pain, and/or
- shortness of breath, and/or
- unexplained weight loss
then you should see your GP for and request a chest X-ray.
These symptoms are very common and are usually due to minor conditions like chest infections. However, it is better to get a chest x-ray to be sure that it is nothing serious. If you have any concerns, always discuss these with your GP or Practice Nurse.
