1. Unexplained Weight Loss
A sudden and unexplained weight loss is one of the warning signs of cancer. Most people believe that there’s nothing wrong with losing weight without having to go to the gym or go on a diet, but it is almost always a sign of a more serious issue.
Colon cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, and esophageal cancer all cause sudden weight loss. That includes lymphoma and leukemia.
The most important thing to realize is that just about any change to your health could be a sign of cancer. Any subtle or consistent health change that persists for over two weeks is the most common cancer warning sign.
Weight changes are caused by cancer cells taking away the energy your body produces. It can also be caused by them releasing substances that alter how your body produces energy or converts food into energy.
2. Weakness and Fatigue
The modern lifestyle is enough to make anyone feel tired. We have to get up early, rush out to the office, then hit the gym at night. This kind of busy life is sure to lead to tiredness issues. However, you it feels like you aren’t able to get out of bed at all or you need a lot of extra rest, then this could be a symptom of cancer rather than depression or anxiety.
3. Frequent Fevers
If you notice that you have a lot of fevers, then you should be aware that this could be a sign of a more significant problem; possibly even cancer. A fever is caused by your immune system fighting against infection. Persistent infections and fevers could be a major warning sign of problems like lymphoma and leukemia.
Cancer weakens the immune system so you are more likely to get ill.
The latest reports suggest that the early warning signs of leukemia and lymphoma are pink eye, persistent fevers, and strep throat. If you are being attacked by random illnesses all the time, you should discuss it with your doctor and get a cancer screening.
