The most worrying fact about cancer symptoms isn’t the presence of cancer itself, but the fact that more people tend to brush off the symptoms as “non-consequential” and therefore not warranting a visit to the doctors. This could lead to some serious consequences. To be sure you’re not one of those people, here are some of the most common cancer symptoms to look out for.
Change in the Appearance of a Mole
Moles are nothing to worry about, usually. But, a sudden change in the appearance of a mole could warrant a visit to the doctor. Those who stay outdoors a lot, either as an occupation or for recreational activities, need to take any unusual changes in the color, shape or texture of an existing mole seriously and visit their doctor to find out if it’s the cancer.
A Cough that Doesn’t Go Away
The common cold and flu is usually accompanied by a cough, but having a cough that won’t go away and persists for a long time could be a symptom of lung cancer, especially for those who smoke. Head and neck cancers are on the rise in young people due to heavy smoking and the increased rates of HPV virus.
An Unexplained Lump
The swelling up of lymph nodes in the neck during a cold is common. It means the body is fighting off a bug, but getting swollen lymph nodes in the neck, groin and armpit that won’t go away even after a few months that aren’t accompanied by the symptoms of lymphoma needs to be checked.
Changes in Bladder Habits
Your pee can often tell you more about your health than you know. Having to pee more often than usual can be a sign of prostate cancer. If you are experiencing unusual bladder movements, you will need to check up with a doctor.
Blood in Pee or Poo
The common cause of blood in poo is piles. But, it could also mean a sign of cancer. Seeing blood in urine should also not be taken lightly. Consulting your doctor will give you an idea of the possible causes, which is crucial since the early detection of any cancer increases the chances of being treated easily.
Changes in the Breasts
Lumps aren’t the only thing for women to watch out for. You also need to look for any sudden change in the shape, size or feel of a breast, including skin changes, or pain. Make sure the doctor knows if there’s fluid leaking from the nipple in a woman who isn’t pregnant.
A Sore that Won’t Heal
The skin is able to repair itself very quickly. Normally, any damage to the skin heals within a few days. But, you should be concerned when a spot or sore does not heal within at least a month, even if it is painless.
Note To Remember
Cancer usually has no specific symptoms, which is why it’s important for people not to ignore any unusual signs that could lead to cancer. The reason why an early detection of any cancer is crucial because it could lead to a possible cure while the cancer is at an early stage.
