10 Signs Of Cancer That People Do Not Know

Cancer can be a devastating disease and people diagnosed often notice some warning symptoms but ignore them or consider them mundane. Indeed, the signs and symptoms of cancer can be perfidious and almost impossible to detect. By recognizing certain signs, you can thus put in place a treatment at the very beginning of the disease.

There are many questions about cancer prevention and screening. Prevention involves information on the risks of cancer, a healthy lifestyle associated with a balanced diet and automatic detection of a disease in suspected healthy individuals. Here are some early warning symptoms of cancer that make it easier to detect the disease.

10 Cancer Precursors:

1- A size or mass under the skin or in the mouth
Often discovered at the level of a breast by an autopalpation, a mass or a size can be the harbinger of breast cancer. But it is possible to find other sizes and masses at different places on your body, which may be like one or more tumors. You may also notice the appearance of white colored bumps in your tongue, gums and mouth. Do not hesitate to perform a regular self-examination and if you notice the occurrence of a swelling, consult your doctor.

2- Scratching skin
The body treats cancer as a bacterium and the immune system fights it by using its white blood cells to destroy it. This defense system increases blood flow, so the cancerous part will be warmer and red, and itch will be itchy. Take a medical opinion if you have any doubt about your itching.

3- Shortness of breath  (breathlessness)
Difficulty breathing, wheezing or shortness of breath may be one of the first signs of lung cancer. Many patients say they noticed the symptom but never did anything, thinking it was only asthma.

4- Digestive disorders
If you experience digestive problems such as loss of appetite, difficulty swallowing, or persistent indigestion, be sure to consult your doctor. Similarly, unexplained weight loss without diet change can be an early sign of colon cancer.

5- A change of stool
Stool changes in size, color, or frequency may sometimes indicate cancer of the digestive tract. Pay attention also to the blood in the stool, indicator of haemorrhages and tumors.

6- A wound that heals badly
If you notice that a lesion or wound takes a long time to heal is that the immune system is not able to speed up the healing because it is busy defending your body against a disease like Cancer. Smoking also prolongs the healing time. Consult your doctor to confirm the reason for your problem.

7- A modification of the urine

Urine changes in appearance, color, odor and even texture (if the urine is foamy, for example), should be checked by a health care professional. In addition, a frequent need to urinate and burns when urinating can be among others the precursors of a cancer because painful urination can be the index of cancer affecting the prostate or bladder.

8- Bleeding

Unexplained bleeding, especially in urine, stool or cough, is the cause of various cancers requiring urgent medical advice and treatment as soon as possible.

9- Voice changes

Cancer of the larynx can cause changes in the voice, such as tone, or hoarseness. This generally indicates the formation of a polyp or a tumor at the level of the vocal cords. If this change lasts more than 3 weeks, seek medical advice.

10- A constant cough
If you notice a chronic cough and chest pain, and you notice sputum of blood associated with your cough, immediately consult a health care professional. It may be lung, bronchial or throat cancer.

Note: To best treat any type of cancer, early diagnosis of the disease allows better treatment and better chances of recovery. It is important that you do not neglect any symptoms, even the most commonplace.
