Listening carefully to your body can give you useful tips on how to detect diseases like cancer.
Early detection of cancer is very important, so if you notice any of the early signs of cancer, check with your doctor to see if further tests are necessary!
Early warning signs of cancer
- Shortness of breath, shortness of breath
Lung cancer patients noticed this as one of the first symptoms, but it was not initially associated with cancer.
- Frequent fever and infection
A cancer of the blood cells that often starts in the bone marrow, often with symptoms of leukemia. This causes the bone marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells that inhibit your body’s ability to fight infection.
- Difficulty swallowing
Often associated with laryngeal cancer, it is a good indicator of lung cancer.
- Weakness and fatigue
Since cancer is such a common symptom, it must be considered in conjunction with other symptoms to determine which one it is.
- Vomiting and not being able to eat
This is a symptom of ovarian cancer. Loss of appetite, even if you haven’t eaten for a while, is a clear indication.
- Loss of appetite
May be the first symptom of pancreatic cancer. A sudden aversion to coffee, wine, or smoking may be related to this.
Visible body changes
- Rectal bleeding or stool bleeding
Common symptoms of colon cancer. Blood in the toilet should be a big enough sign to see a doctor right away.
- Formation of lumps in the neck, armpits and groin area
Swollen lymph nodes indicate a change in the lymphatic system, which can lead to cancer.
- Excessive bruising or bleeding
Abnormalities of platelets and red blood cells are suggested as signs of blood cancer. Leukemia cells compress red blood cells, reducing the blood’s ability to carry oxygen and causing blood clots.
- Bloating or abdominal weight gain
Unexplained bloating has been reported in ovarian cancer patients with sudden onset and prolonged duration.
- Unreasonable weight loss
Early symptoms of colon and other digestive tract cancers. Also a sign of cancer that has spread to the liver and is affecting your appetite and your ability to get rid of waste from your body.
- The breast is red, painful and swollen
Unexplained changes that indicate inflammatory breast cancer should be reported to the doctor immediately. Breasts that are flat, inverted, or rolled to the side have also been observed in patients diagnosed with breast cancer.
- Facial swelling
Patients with lung cancer report that they notice facial swelling, swelling, and redness. Small cell lung tumors often block the arteries in the chest, preventing blood from flowing to the head.
- Bleeding, crusting, non-healing sores/lumps on the skin
Different types of skin cancer (melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma) can cause these, so look out for any strange-looking growths or spots.
- Nail changes
A brown/black spot under the nail indicates skin cancer. Pale or white nails can be a sign of liver cancer. An enlarged “clubbing” of the finger with a downward-curving nail on the tip of the finger can be a sign of lung cancer.
- Menstruation is unusually heavy or painful, bleeding between periods
Common symptoms of endometrial or uterine cancer. If the problem persists, a vaginal ultrasound should be performed.
- Chronic cough or chest pain
Leukemia and lung cancer (other) can cause symptoms that mimic cough or bronchitis. Some patients report chest pain that radiates down the shoulders and arms.
- Pelvic/abdominal pain
Pelvic pain and cramping can be associated with ovarian cancer swelling. It does this because leukemia can enlarge the spleen.
- Pain in the back or lower right
It is often the first symptom of liver cancer. Breast cancer can also be detected as breast cancer presses back into the chest or spreads to the back/ribs.
Stomach cramping or constant pain can be a symptom of colon cancer.
How to reduce your risk
Vitamin D can help prevent cancer, so keep your levels in check with careful sun exposure and supplementation. Lower your insulin levels by reducing or eliminating processed foods, as insulin levels can affect prostate cancer. It can also be monitored and controlled by blood tests.
Regular exercise not only keeps your body healthy but also helps lower your insulin levels. Higher plasma concentrations of lycopene, a carotenoid pigment found in tomatoes and many fruits and berries, are associated with earlier b
