We can easily say that cancer is one of the deadliest diseases today. While a healthy diet can decrease the risk of developing certain cancer, other factors like genes can play a larger role. Once cancer spreads, it can be difficult to treat. Knowing early symptoms can help you seek early treatment to better your chances of remission. Well, this means that you should ignore these early warning signs and if you notice any of them, you should see your doctor immediately.
Don’t Ignore These 10 Warning Signs:
1. Lump beneath the skin
You can easily discover lumps with regular self-examination. The most critical areas include breasts, testicles, armpits, throat, abdomen, and other soft tissues. A good way to tell whether a change has occurred on your body is by touching these areas and detecting any unusual feeling. Doing self-examinations on a regular basis can help you catch early changes on your body before they develop into larger tumors.
2. Itchy Skin
Since our body treats cancer as a sort of bacterium, another sign that indicate cancer is itchy skin. Our immune system tries to destroy it with the use of white blood cells. This increases the blood flow in the affected area, causing feeling of warmth, tightening, itchiness, and reddish skin color.
3.Wounds that don’t heal
If you have a cut or other injury to the surface of your skin and it is taking a long time to heal or you notice little progress, it is a sign that cancer may be growing in your body.
Your immune system has to prioritize defense zones and cancer takes priority for all available bodily resources way before your minor wound. Take excellent care to keep the wound clean, and consider getting blood screening done just to be cautious.
4. Bumps on the Mouth or Tongue
If you notice that you have bumps that appear inside the mouth, gums or throat, especially if they are white in color, you should see your doctor immediately.
5. Loss of appetite or trouble swallowing
Any digestive discomfort is something to discuss with a doctor as it inhibits the absorption of nutrients inside your body.
6. Changed Bowel Movements
You should be concerned if any weird change in your bowel movements last more than 2 days. Blood in the stool can indicate colon cancer.
7.Changes in urination
Similarly to normal bowel functioning, your bladder function should be fairly regular. Changes in the strength of your urine flow, color, smell, the presence of foam, or especially noticeable blood should be checked immediately for cancer growing in your body.
You should be very careful and if you notice bleeding that is unexplained – you should see your doctor. Blood from the uterus, nipple or in any bodily excretions can be a major sign of a problem.
8. Changes in voice
larynx cancer can often cause the pitch and tone of your voice to change.
10. Constant Coughing
Constant coughing that lasts more than 2 weeks can be a warning sign of the following types of cancer: throat, esophagus, lungs, and even stomach cancer. If your cough is painful, persistent, and you cough blood, make an appointment with your doctor immediately.
If you notice any of these warning signs of cancer, visit your doctor immediately!
