Symptoms of tracheal and bronchial tumors include:

  • Coughing
  • Coughing up blood
  • Difficult or labored breathing
  • Stridor, a high-pitched musical sound that occurs as breath is drawn in, caused by a blockage in the throat or larynx (voice box)
  • Wheezing

Patients with more advanced disease may experience difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) and hoarseness, which usually indicates that the cancer has spread beyond the trachea.
