7 cancer symptoms that most people ignore

News Hour:

Cancer can attack various parts of the body, it is crucial to pay attention to our bodies. Below are 7 cancer warning signs.

1. Frequent cough

Frequent coughing can simply be a sign of allergies — but when the cough is very persistent you may want to consider seeking the opinion of a specialist. Even non- smokers can develop throat, larynx and lung cancer. Therese Bartholomew Bevers, MD of the MD Anderson Cancer Center, said that “Most coughs are not cancer, but a persistent cough needs to be evaluated because it can be a symptom of lung cancer.”

2. Weight loss without dieting

Though losing weight is the dream of many women, without dieting it can be the indicator of a disease. Look out for sudden weight gain as well, reports FamilyShare.

3. Frequent pain in the joints

Joint pain is one of the symptoms of bone cancer, whether it is frequent or not. Getting headaches does not mean you have a brain tumor, but it’s always nice to closely evaluate them. Many ovarian cancers are diagnosed after persistent abdominal pain. And lung cancer can be spotted from chest pains.

4. Fatigue without apparent cause

Being overly tired for no apparent reason can be a sign of the blood cancer Leukemia. Being aware of changes like this in your body can save your life.

5. Jaundice

When jaundice, the yellowing of skin most commonly seen in babies, appears in adults, it may be a sign of liver problems, including cancer.

6. Dark spots and freckles that change color and size

It is never a bad idea to have freckles and moles checked periodically. Also, all new dark spots on the skin should be examined. Skin cancer can be detected precisely from these spots.

7. Eye pain that persists

Pain in the eye, a symptom of eye cancer, can easily be mistaken as a result of being tired. If pain persists, consult a doctor immediately.
