A physical examination may reveal the presence of some symptoms associated with lung cancer. Chest X-rays as well as CT (computerized tomography) scans can detect the presence of tumors and abnormal tissues present in the lungs. Sputum cytology, CT guided core needle biopsy, biopsy via fine needle aspiration, bronchoscopy, and surgery are common procedures to analyze the nature of tumor cells and determine the specific type of lung cancer.
