There are many signs that our body gives to us, when something is not as it should. One of the signs are early signs of cancer. Because of that it is very important to know them in order to recognize them and do something about it.
In this article we present you few early signs that warn that you should visit a doctor.
Excessive bruising or bleeding that will not stop
One of the signs of leukemia can be the irregular function of the platelets and red blood cells. The red blood cell’s ability to carry oxygen is compromised as leukemia cells take over, which leads to blood clotting
Changes in fingernails
Changes in the fingernails that are caused by physical trauma can point to several types of cancer. Skin cancer is normally manifested by a brown or black streak or dot under the nail, whereas lung cancer is signaled by nail clubbing, which is an enlargement of the ends of the fingers with nails that bend down over the tips. Liver cancer can sometimes be indicated by pale or white nails.
Lump or bumps
Changes in the lymphatic system, including cancer onset, are normally manifested by enlarged lymph nodes. Any lump on your body requires instant medical attention.
A red, sore, or swollen breast
Sore, red, and/ or swollen breasts can be a sign of inflammatory breast cancer. Any change in your breast appearance asks for an immediate medical examination.
Changes in nipples
According to the reports, most of breast cancer patients, the primary sign of breast cancer, they noticed before being diagnosed was a change in their nipple that began to appear flattened, inverted, or turned sideways.
Lung cancer can be manifested by face swelling, and is caused by the small cell lung tumors that usually block the blood vessels in the chest, preventing the free blood flow from your head and face. Many lung-cancer patients have had puffiness, swelling or redness in the face.
A sore that does not heal becomes crusty or bleeds easily
Different types of skin cancer, including melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma are usually indicated by unusual changes on your skin.
