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 six 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.
