Cancer is a very insidious disease. Even the forms of detection that are considered to be the best like for example tests and routine check-ups are not that reliable. Any strange symptom that you find suspicious and unexplained can help you detect it on time.
Here, we’re presenting you 20 of the 20 early signs that you should never ignore:
WHEEZING AND SHORTNESS OF BREATH
These signs are considered to be the earliest signs for the appearance of lung cancer in your body.
CHEST PAIN AND CHRONIC COUGH
According to some patients, pain down the arm as well as chest pain and cough are also pretty common. Some types of cancers like leukemia and lung tumors can even mimic symptoms of a chronic cough.
RECURRENT FEVER AND INFECTIONS
Infections as well as frequent fever can signify leukemia which we all know is one type of a blood tumor that develops in the bone marrow. It makes the marrow produce abnormal white blood cells which later attack your whole immune system.
Having difficulties swallowing may signify the presence of throat, lung or esophageal cancer.
SWOLLEN LYMPH NODES ON THE UNDERARMS, GROIN AND NECK
These are often negative changes in the lymph system and they are mostly caused by cancer.
BRUISING AND BLEEDING THAT DON’T STOP
This sign means that there’s a disturbance in the platelets and red blood cells. It can be caused by leukemia. The amount of white blood cells becomes abnormal. It can eliminate the red blood cells and your body becomes unable to clot, so you’ll start to lose blood.
Unfortunately, fatigue is considered to be one of the most overlooked signs. Still, it doesn’t always mean cancer, so you shouldn’t worry. It should come along with other symptoms. If you’ve noticed that you’re tired without a reason and you feel like that all the time, call your doctor.
PELVIC AND ABDOMINAL PAIN
These signs along with cramps and bloating usually signify ovarian cancer.
BLOATING AND SUDDEN ABDOMINAL WEIGHT GAIN
Make sure you visit a doctor if these symptoms continue for a long period of time as they usually indicate ovarian cancer.
RECTAL BLEEDING AND BLOOD IN THE STOOL
Blood in the stool can be an early sign of colorectal cancer, so if you notice it, make sure you visit a doctor.
