The lung cancer does causes the symptoms of diffficulty in breathing, anaemia, loss of weight etc.The vomitting is a symptoms and the green colour was due to the bilious vomitting that is food mixed with bile which is green in colour.
He might have aspirated with the green vomitus and had aspiration of the contents into the lung causing suffocation and death.
