Is cancer heard by doctor listening to breathing with a stetoscope?

That would be my question. Would the doctor hear anything in case of lung cacer or other lung tumor?

Re: Is cancer heard by doctor listening to breathing with a stetoscope?

I am certainly no expert, but I believe the doctor's are listening for any number of chest sounds with the stethoscope. If Dr. detects anything, they will then follow up with additional tests, depending on the diagnosis. I doubt a doctor could diagnose any serious condition such as cancer, based only on using a stethoscope.

Best of luck to you
