5 Signs From Your Daily Routine Showing You May Have Cancer

Tags

Cancer is a scary word that nobody enjoys hearing but the reality is that the sooner it’s diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin and your life can get back to some sort of normalcy. Knowing the facts and understanding the symptoms is a good way to make sure if something isn’t right, it’s caught early. Here are 5 signs that you may have cancer.



1. Unintentional weight loss
Unless you are actively trying to lose weight, randomly losing a significant amount of weight is definitely worth seeing a doctor over. If you’ve noticed that you’ve managed to lost 10 lbs in the last few weeks without any changes to your diet or exercise regime, go and ask your local doctor.

2. Changes to your skin
It’s important to take notice of your actual skin condition and not just the moles and freckles you have. A lot of the time-yellowed, reddened or darker patches of skin can be a sign of something sinister. It can also be a symptom of skin problems lurking beneath and not cancerous but it’s always best to double check with your doctor.

3. Severe painDepending on the type of cancer you may experience prolonged periods of pain in the affected area. Cancer’s like bone, brain and ovarian cancers do tend to first be noticed because of the pain associated with it. However, a lot of cancer’s have no pain whatsoever.
4. Unhealed sores
From mouth ulcers that haven’t healed to scabs that have taken far too long to disappear, these scabs can be a sign that either your immune system isn’t functioning normally or that the type of cancer (like mouth or oral) is showing up on the surface.
5. Changes in bowel movements
While everyone’s bowel movements change depending on what food they’ve recently indulged in, if you notice things changing relatively quickly or have gone from solid to liquid or painful then it might be a sign that your intestines and bowel aren’t working the way they are meant.

Note: It’s important to keep in mind that while being vigilant and taking notice of changes is vital, a lot of these symptoms and signs can be attributed to other less life-threatening illnesses so before jumping to any conclusions, consult your local doctor and find out what’s going on.
Happy Pinning :)
