Cancer Symptoms You Should Not Ignore


Cancer is an epidemic, and anyone is susceptible to getting it. The best way to detect cancer is when it just begins. Attending routine cancer screenings is the best way to do this, particularly for cancers like cervical and colon. However, there are many types of cancers that have no screenings. Therefore, knowing which symptoms could be a precursor or symptoms that often are created by the onset of cancer can help you detect cancer.

Research done by the American Cancer Society and other groups have found that people tend to ignore symptoms then underestimate how serious those symptoms are. One study done in London found that 60% of the participants had experienced symptoms caused by cancer 3 months before ever going to the doctor. Most of those people hadn’t even considered cancer as a cause.

It is important to understand that anyone can develop cancer, but it becomes more common as we get older. Most cases of cancer are diagnosed after the age of 50 and up.

Below are cancer symptoms that you cannot ignore:

Persistent Tiredness

Fatigue is normal in this present time, especially when you work, try to maintain social commitments, complete errands, maintain your health, and so on. Still, you should be able to get out of bed. If there are days where you feel so tired that you can’t get out of bed, or you find yourself needing more naps than usual, it could be a sign of something serious. Cancers like lymphoma, leukemia, and thyroid cancer continuously sap energy.
