13: Noticeable skin and mole changes
Skin cancer is not only the most common cancer in the US, but its early signs are also tricky to recognize. Skin cancer is nasty and disfigures you terribly, so catching it early on is important for a good prognosis. Melanoma is a malignant skin cancer that develops from our pigment-producing cells, the melanocytes
12: Sores that refuse to heal
Cold sores in the mouth are normal, and are usually triggered out of hiding by stress and fever. Usually they aren’t a cause for worry, but if you notice a particular sore that’s not healing past a three week mark, then go see a doctor. A normal sore would have healed itself
11: Unexpected vaginal bleeding
All women should be aware of the regularity of their menstrual cycles so that they could detect any changes that are out of the norm. Any vaginal bleeding outside of the normal cycle is a cause for concern, and could be an early sign of cervical cancer. This also applies to women who have undergone menopause.
10: Weight loss with no apparent reason
Easy and unexpected weight loss might sound like a dream for some, but not when it comes with a deadly disease. Adults usually try hard to shed weight, but if your weight obviously goes down without much effort, then it’s an indication of a medical problem
9: An unusual lump
This should be a no brainer, as anyone with common sense would absolutely think “tumor” upon feeling an unusual lump on their body. But you’d be surprised at the number of people who ignore this symptom
8: Frequent fevers and infections
Fever is the body’s way of fighting off an infection. While it is a good defense mechanism, frequent and persistent fevers is a sign that the body is consistently being the victim of repeated infections due to a low immune system. Immune deficiency can be caused by any disease that affects the primary disease-fighting agents which are the white blood cells. In the case of leukemia
7: Persistent difficulty in swallowing
A sore throat makes swallowing not only difficult, but also painful. If you continuously experience difficulty in swallowing, don’t ignore it. Several different cancers can cause this symptom such as neck
6: Unexplained and persistent pain
Contrary to what some people think, pain is not a main symptom of cancer. In fact, most cancers start out completely painless. However, any persistent pain should not be ignored as they could still indicate cancer. Brain cancer for example, is the last thing anyone would think of when they get a headache. But intense and persistent ones, especially for those who are not prone
5: Unusual and excessive bruising
So you wake up one day with an unusual bruise on your arm, with no idea how it got there. No need to worry, you probably ran into something the previous day and forgot about it. But if bruises start appearing all the time with no apparent reason, and at strange
4: Feeling tired all the time
We all have those days when we feel completely exhausted, but a good rest and sleep should be enough to recharge our energy. But if you experience persistent fatigue on a daily basis for over a month or shortness of breath when you didn’t before, then be sure
3: Nail changes
Did you know that many diseases and illnesses can be seen in the nails alone? There are approximately 30 different nail signs that can be associated with medical conditions including lung cancer, heart diseases, and nutrient deficiencies. Vertical dark lines are common in people with dark skin, but can also indicate a form
2: Changes in bowel habits and bloody stools
Everyone has their own regular bowel habits, and goes to the toilet at a certain frequency that they’re used to. But when there is a notable change for long periods, either having to go more often, or less, this could be a bad sign. Especially when the nature of the stool has also changed, appearing smaller, larger, or somewhat deformed, this could be a sign of colon cancer. A mass in the intestines could hinder the smooth movements of a stool, or disturb the absorption of water and elements inside the colon, making the resulting stool appear different in size, shape, and color
1: Persistent cough or hoarseness of the voice
Everyone gets colds and usually there is absolutely nothing to worry about, even if you feel like coughing up a lung. But when it is accompanied with hoarse sounds, or blood, it’s a red flag, and time for you to see a doctor. Especially when no other symptoms that usually accompany colds and allergies like a stuffy nose is present. Although most coughs are benign, a bloody or persistent one that’s different than your regular cough must be examined to rule out lung
