It is difficult to detect cancer in the early stages, however there are signs and symptoms that should be taken into consideration when tackling cancer. But some types of cancer have no specific symptoms until the very last stages, hence a routine cancer screening and risk assessment is a must.
• Rise in body temperature at times. This happens mainly when the cancer or its treatment affects the immune system.
• Abnormal weight loss over a month can be one sign that may hint towards cancer.
• Fatigue feeling occurring along with sudden bouts of fever
• Pain occurs when the cancer has already spread in the body, so this cancer symptom comes at later stage.
• Change in appearance, boundary or colour in a pre-existing mole or appearance of new lesions. These skin sores do not heal and might get worse over a period of time.
• Constipation, diarrhea frequency, bleeding in urine,pain when passing urine, blood in the urine, or a change in bladder function.
• Appearance of white patches found inside the mouth or on the tongue. This later develops into oral cancers.
• Unusual bleeding or blood discharge in sputum, stool, urine and nipple.
• Lump in the breast or other parts of the body can be ignored to other health conditions, so it’s best to consult a doctor as and when you spot them.
• Cough or hoarseness of voice could be a sign of throat cancer. Indigestion or trouble swallowing is a precursor for stomach or esophagus cancer.
