The biggest problem with Cancer is that invariably it is diagnosed when it is too late. However, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t warn you. That’s another bummer by the way because cancer symptoms are mistaken by most people as common health conditions. That is why you should never ignore any persisting condition plaguing you for an unusual length of time. Recognizing these early signs of cancer can well save your life one day.

1Unusual lumps beneath the skin

Lumps beneath the skin where the surface seems smooth should always be shown to a doctor. A natural way to feel if anything is wrong is to touch the lump and feel the sensations. Similarly, you can perform self-examinations for lumps in the breasts, testicles, armpits, throat skin and abdomen. Lumps can ultimately develop in tumors by which time it may be too late.

2Irregular bowel movements

Irregular bowel movements such as constipation followed by diarrhea or vice versa can mean an underlying condition. Blood in stool for more than two days could be a sign of colon cancer. Pain during stools, the presence of mucus and frequent color changes are all possible signs of infection if not cancer. Such occurrences warrant a stool test immediately.

3Appetite loss and difficulty in swallowing

Irregular digestion patterns inhibit your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. When you have difficulty in swallowing it could be due to an esophageal problem. Either way such conditions may occur sometimes due to reflux or rich food but if such conditions persist it could well be an early sign of cancer.
