Symptoms of cancer that ignore

Many people ignore the early signs of cancer, complains to those unfamiliar with them and go the doctor until they are deadly serious matter. 

Identify the first signs and get help in time.

Routine tests such as the Pap test and colonoscopy are very important for early prevention of cancer, but to identify the disease at the time pay attention to the symptoms that you can see for yourself.

It's important not to ignore unusual, new and unexplained symptoms. Although they may cause less serious illnesses, if persist, the situation is worth checking with your doctor. I do not want to join a cancer doctor who arrived at an advanced stage of the disease, when the chances for cure is small.

Shortness of breath

One of the first signs lung cancer patients remember that the later is a waste of breath. 'I could not even walk across the yard without having to breathe. I thought I had asthma, but how come I did not have before? 'Recalls one patient.

Thyroid cancer can also cause breathing problems if the nodules or tumors pressing the trachea. Any breathing difficulties that persist are the reason for the visit to the doctor.

Problems with swallowing and hoarseness

Problems with swallowing are associated with the occurrence of cancer of the esophagus and larynx, and that is sometimes a sign of lung cancer. Hoarseness, quieter voice or a feeling that something you pressed throat can be an early sign of thyroid cancer. At the same may be, the feeling that something is stuck in the windpipe.

Frequent fever and infection

This may be a sign of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in the bone marrow. Leukemia causes the marrow to produce abnormal white cells so the body can not fight infections. Doctors often diagnose leukemia only after the patient has been repeatedly complaining of fever, pain, and flu-like symptoms that last for a long time.

Gastric problems

No matter how benign it may sound, but some abdominal pain saved his life because the doctors were recently posted on an ultrasound and found to have a liver tumor. Stomach cramps or frequent stomach problems may also indicate bowel cancer. Many people with colon cancer have been told that their doctors initially thought to be suffering from ulcers.

Weakness and fatigue

"I constantly felt the need to sit down, and one evening I was too tired to drive home," said one woman describing fatigue with which he revealed that he was suffering from leukemia. General weakness and fatigue, symptoms of various forms of cancer, so it is important to notice and other symptoms. In any case, if for no reason feel tired and lazy lie does not help that fatigue persists, talk to your doctor.

Unexplained weight loss

If you notice the pounds disappear, and you have not changed your diet or exercise, you have to wonder why it happened. Weight loss can be a symptom of colon cancer and other tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. It points to a cancer that has spread to the liver, because it affects appetite and the body's ability to remove impurities.

Changes in nails

Unexplained changes to the fingernails can indicate different types of tumors. Brown or black line or dot under the nail can indicate skin cancer. New phenomenon curved nails (growing downwards after the fingertips) may indicate lung cancer. Pale or white nails can indicate that the liver is not functioning as it should, sometimes indicate liver cancer.

Chronic "acid stomach" and a feeling of fullness after a small meal

The most common early sign of stomach cancer is pain in the upper or middle abdomen that is reminiscent of heartburn. Worsens if you eat. Confuses the symptom disappears after taking the remedy against heartburn, which leads you to the wrong conclusion that this is a small problem. If you have frequent bouts of stomach acid and stomach pain and feeling full after a small meal, see a doctor.

Chronic heartburn

If you eat a large pizza, heartburn is the possible reaction of the stomach, but if heartburn occurs frequently or you follow a small constant pain in the chest after eating, call a doctor test for cancer of the esophagus.

Bowel problems

Constipation, diarrhea or other changes stools may indicate cancer. If it takes longer than a few days, and there is no obvious reason (you do not have the flu or food poisoning you) it's time to worry. Patients with colon cancer often say they have noticed more frequent stools and the feeling of not completely empty your bowels. One of the first signs of pancreatic cancer is fatty stools, which is frequent, larger, paler and has unpleasant odor than normal. It is a sign that your body does not absorb food normally. Explain this doctor.

Second Changes to the nipple (peeling, retractable or reversal)
3rd Swelling or abnormal body weight (may indicate ovarian cancer)
4th The feeling of fullness and loss of appetite
5th Unusually heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods (may indicate cancer of the uterus)

Symptoms of cancer that men often ignore:

First Erectile dysfunction (a possible sign of prostate cancer)
Second Pain and heaviness in the loins, hips, thighs or abdomen (one of the signs of prostate cancer is just a constant pain in the area)
3rd Swelling of the testicles or lumps (possible sign of testicular cancer, mostly painlessly)
