Every time something goes wrong with our body, our immune system responds by sending our conscious mind a sign that something must be done in order to preserve the overall health and wellbeing. That is also the case when one of the world’s deadliest diseases attacks our body, and yes, we are talking about cancer.
In this article, we are going to provide you with a list of symptoms and signals your body will send you if a tumor has started growing within your body. These are the signs you need to watch out for, and if you notice any, immediately consult with your doctor or go for a check-up:
- Skin Itching
Since cancer is classified by the body as a bacteria, the immune system is fighting it with white blood cells. This causes an increased blood flow which causes skin itching.
- Urine Changes
If all of a sudden your urine becomes bloody, foamy and has a strange odor or color to it, do a checkup.
- Voice Changes
The voice of an individual is in most cases affected by larynx cancer, therefore, if you notice any change, contact a medical expert.
- Wounds Don’t Heal
Another common cancer symptom is a wound that is healing either slowly, or not healing at all, as the cancer has taken up the priority of the immune system.
- A Cough
Most types of cancer are represented by a cough that won’t go away, therefore if you are coughing badly for more than 2-3 weeks, it is time for a checkup.
Bleeding in between your period? Well this means it is time for a checkup with a doctor.
- Tongue or Mouth Lumps
If you notice any white-colored bumps on your gums inside your mouth, they are another potential cause of cancer.
- Lumps Under The Skin
The same goes for any lumps you may notice on your skin.
- Stool Changes
If you have a change in your stool which lasts for more than 2 days, this can be another sign that something may be wrong with your body.
- Loss of Appetite/Swallowing Problem
Anything which causes problems with the digestive process is of serious concern, as it affects the body’s ability to take nutrients from the food you are eating.
