In early stages of cancer, you generally do not expect any signs or symptoms that will convince you to believe it is CANCER. The signs and symptoms depend on how big the cancer is, where the disease is and how much it is affecting the tissues and organs. However, if the cancer starts growing and is spreading in the body, there are various signs that you can observe.
A single symptom is enough to convince you that you are suffering from cancer or any other diseases. For example, a rash on your child’s skin is normal and it may be due to some skin allergy, food allergy or may be due to certain ignorance. But when a child is suffering from rash along with fever, vomiting or certain bodily problems, it is a sign that you are suffering from a serial disorder.
So, here are some Warning Signs Of Cancer you should not ignore.
Fatigue is one of the most common and popular signs in a person suffering from the disease. You generally are more tired and feel to rest all the day long. However, due to colon or stomach cancer there can be loss of blood in the body, which is not normal for any person.
2. Unexpected weight loss
Unexpected and sudden weight loss is one of the common symptoms of a person suffering from cancer. This is generally when you are losing without doing anything and eating healthily. If you are suffering from the disease, you will start from losing 10 pounds and then continue doing so. Unexpected pain loss is generally when you are suffering from stomach cancer, lunges or oesophagus.
Another most common symptom that can affect a person suffering from the killer disease, especially ‘blood cancer’ is fever. Generally, fever starts spreading when you are in your initial stage of the disease. Almost all people with the disease will have fever at some time, especially if the cancer or its treatment affects the immune system. When you are suffering from fever, it becomes very difficult to fight against the bacteria in the body.
4. Skin change
Another most common symptom is changes over skin. Along with skin cancer, any other types of cancer can lead to changes of skin. You can see darker looking skin, excessive hair growth, reddened skin, itching and yellowish skin and eyes of the person. Other than this, slight and sudden change of skin can be early symptoms of the disease too.
Early symptoms include pain and especially if you are suffering from bone and testicular cancer. You generally experience headache that does not goes away or pain you generally suffer from tumour. Back pain can be a symptom of cancer of the colon, rectum, or ovary. If the pain starts increasing day by day, it means that the disease is already spread from where it actually started.
6. Unusual bleeding or discharge
Be careful if you suffer from unusual bleeding or discharge. If you cough up with blood, it means the disease has already reached an advanced stage. Blood in stool can be early signs of rectal cancer. However, if you are suffering from blood in urine you are suffering from kidney or bladder cancer. Other than this, if you are having a bloody discharge from your breast, it is signs of advanced breast cancer.
7. White patches inside the mouth
If you spot white patches inside the mouth or on the tongue, it may be leukoplakia. Leukoplakia is a pre-cancerous area that’s caused by frequent irritation which is generally caused due to smoking and tobacco consumption. People who smoke pipes or use oral or spit tobacco are always at high risk for leukoplakia. If this condition is not treated it can generally lead to mouth cancer.
