The human body is made to send us signals as symptoms to inform us that something is wrong. Unfortunately, many of us ignore these signs, thinking that everything will be fine anyway.
We have put together several symptoms that may indicate cancer, and we recommend taking them seriously.
If you see any of these symptoms in yourself or in your closest relatives, do not jump to conclusions, many of them can talk about very different diseases. However, it is still better to see a doctor.
Early Symptoms of Cancer
7. Skin Neoplasms
Neoplasms are considered a sign of skin or breast cancer. Other symptoms include:
- Hard knots in the chest and / or armpits.
- Irritation or rash of unknown origin that is not associated with a food or cosmetic allergy.
- The appearance of a wet ulcer in the center of a neoplasm.
- A birthmark growth or shape change.
6. Persistent Cough
A lengthy cough is one of the symptoms of lung disease that can be associated with other signs, such as:
- A decrease in appetite
- Sudden weight loss.
- In later stages, lung cancer can cause coughing and shortness of breath.
5. Skin Itching
In most cases, a skin rash is not associated with tumors, but clinical experience shows a certain connection:
- A uterine neoplasm causes genital itching.
- Brain cancer may provoke itching in the nostrils.
4. Bowel Function Changes
A bowel disease can cause the following symptoms:
- Blood in the stool.
- Mucous or purulent secretions.
- Spontaneous defecation.
3. Secretions When Urinating
This may be a sign of kidney cancer that is also associated with several other symptoms:
- Blood when urinating.
- Kidney pain.
- Chronic weakness
2. Abrupt Weight Loss
An inexplicable weight loss can occur when you have stomach cancer. In the early stages, clinical events are not so obvious. However, the following symptoms are quite common:
- Disgust for meat.
- Premature satiation (the feeling of having eaten too much when you actually ate a small amount of food).
- The difficulty of food movement through the bowels.
1. Persistent Sore Throat
A long-lasting sore throat can be a symptom of laryngeal cancer, which is also associated with the following:
- Difficulty breathing and swallowing.
- The sensation of a lump in the throat appears with the growth of the neoplasm.
- Hoarseness in speech, with loss of voice.
- Coughing up blood, bad breath.
These observations can’t and shouldn’t be used to diagnose because they may be associated with other diseases. However, if you noticed any of the above, don’t ignore them. See your doctor and do a test.
