The concept of cancer being a life taking disease is changing. There are several ways of treating cancer now. However, the faster one starts the treatment, the better it is. How do you know if the virus has entered your body? Well, there are several cancer symptoms that you must be aware of. As it says, “A stitch in time saves nine.”
Here are are early cancer symptoms
Change in Urination
It is very common to get urinary changes as you age. However, they are early cancer signals as well. So, be careful with it. Leaks and incontinence may be one such sign to be worried about. Despite urges if you face problems to urinate, do not neglect it. Delayed urination is also a sign of cancer. Blood in urine may not always be a sign of UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) and be of cancer.
Continuous Back Pain
If your job requires 8-10 hours of sitting then it is obvious that you will develop back pain. But, persistent back pain may be a sign of prostate cancer. Occasional muscle pain causes discomfort to the bones which may lead to cancer in the future.
We think that smokers only cough a lot. It is not confirmed that people allergic to coughing or smokers will only cough. If you are coughing continuously without having a cold then you must pay a visit to the doctor soon. Continuous coughing is a signal of lung cancer.
Tiredness that Does Not End
8 hours job will surely make you tired. But keep a note that this fatigue should not be never ending. Excessive tiredness may be a sign of colorectal cancer in men. Do not ignore these symptoms and visit a doctor soon.
Sudden Weight Loss
If you lose weight suddenly without putting any effort then you must worry about it. Do not be happy that you are losing weight but go for a medical check-up. Weight loss requires lot of hard work, like going to the gym, controlling diet and others. So, if you are losing weight without any effort and the change is eye catching then you must worry a bit. This may be an early cancer threat.
Non Healing Sores
All sores in our body heal with time and medication. However, if it is taking long for the sore to heal then do not neglect it. At times this may turn fatal.
Don’t Ignore Lumps
Any kind of lump in the body is a sign of cancer. So if you notice lump in your body, it is better to get treated as soon as possible.
Don’t treat your heartburn as simple. If you feel that you get heartburn after every meal or it is getting difficult to digest then it might be a signal of cancer. Get treated.
Cancer can be cured if treatment is made at the early stage as you can stop the spreading. This often means a better way for a cure, if the cancer can be removed with surgery.
We, at times ignore symptoms. We they don’t know those symptoms could take away our lives. This is mainly because we are frightened by what the symptoms could mean and don’t want to get medical help.
Some symptoms, such as tiredness or coughing, are more likely caused by something other than cancer. Cancer symptoms can seem unimportant, especially if there’s a clear cause or the problem only lasts a short time. On this World Cancer Day let us pledge for a Cancer free environment and support who all are suffering with this disease.
