Our body has a way of informing our conscious mind that something is wrong inside, and this goes on for a number of health conditions, diseases, infections including the worst one of all – cancer.
Therefore, it is important that you watch out for any unusual signs that your body might be sending you if a tumor is developing inside of you so you can take action while you still can. Down below is a list of the most common signs of cancer:
- Itching of the skin
The body classifies cancer as bacteria, and the immune system is fighting it with white blood cells. This as a result leads to an increased blood flow in the areas where cancer cells are progressing, which causes skin itching.
- Changes in urination
If your urine is all of a sudden foamy, bloody and with a strange odor and color, you need to perform a checkup.
- Changes in voice
Larynx cancer can often affected an individual’s voice, so if you notice any, contact a medical expert.
- Wounds that do not heal
Another common sign of cancer is wounds that heal slowly, as cancer is taken as a priority by the immune system and the defenses focus on the cancer instead of the wound.
- A cough
Most cancer types cause a persistent cough, so if you’re coughing badly more than 2-3 weeks, it is time for a checkup.
If you’re bleeding in-between your period, then you immediately need to visit a doctor.
- Lumps in the mouth or on the tongue
White colored bumps on your gums inside your mouth or your throat are another sign of cancer so consult with a doctor.
- Lumps under the skin
If the surface of some area of your body is looking like a bump, then it could signify the development of a tumor under the skin.
- Changes in the stool
Every change to your stool which lasts longer than 2 days can signify that something is wrong with your body.
- Loss of appetite or swallowing problems
Everything which inhibits the digestive process is of concern, as it impairs the body’s ability to take nutrients from the food you consume.
