The Most Obvious Cancer Symptoms
Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in the world. Unless it is diagnosed at an early stage, cancer can prove to be fatal. However, even if it is diagnosed and treated at an early stage, there are still serious chances of a recurrence at a later age.
It can develop in any part of the body. There are many types of cancer. Some common types include lung cancer, blood cancer, breast cancer and throat cancer. Early detection is vital to finding a viable cure.
Chemotherapy is effective only if the cancer is detected at an early stage. That is why you need to keep the most obvious cancer symptoms in your mind. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, it might be a wise idea to seek medical assistance:
If you are bleeding from any part of the body for no apparent reason, it may be a sign of cancer. Unexplained bleeding is one of the most common cancer symptoms. For instance, if your mouth is bleeding profusely, it may be due to a cancerous lump. If you spit out a lot of blood after brushing your teeth, you may want to get it checked out.
Feeling a Lump or Swelling in Any Part of the Body
If you can feel a small lump in any part of your body, you should go for an ultrasound or set up an appointment for an X-ray immediately. Cancerous tumors often start off as small, unexplained lumps. Unless you get the lump checked, you will always remain in doubt. Moreover, there are chances that the lump will grow and metastasize to other parts of the body.
Excessive Loss of Weight
Unexplained loss of weight in a short period of time is a major symptom of cancer. Your body doesn’t get rid of its excess weight unless you are suffering from a serious ailment. If you continue to lose weight, set up an appointment. Rapid loss of appetite is also a major sign that there may be a cancerous tumor developing in any part of your body.
One of the earliest signs of lung cancer is excessive coughing. People who suffer from lung cancer often begin to note a constant hoarseness in their voice. Most importantly, if you continue to cough even though you are taking adequate cough syrup or medication, you may want to visit a specialist.
Many people tend to ignore such symptoms during the early stages, only to curse their inaction later on. Don’t be that type of person. If you feel that there’s something, set up an appointment.
