The early detection of cancer symptoms increases the chances of beating this nasty disease . Some of the symptoms are quite commonly experienced , yet a large number of people ignore them.
Here are the 10 most common symptoms of cancer:
1. Shortness of Breath
One of the first signs of lung cancer, which tends to be ignored, is wheezing or shortness of breath. Cancer patients say that they have experienced this symptom but have never done anything about it.. Very frequently, these symptoms tend to be misdiagnosed with asthma.
2. Chronic Cough And Chest Pain
Several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung cancer, can cause symptoms such as cough or bronchitis. One of the ways in which you can tell the difference is if the problem is constant or intermittent. If you have constant pain or a cough, consult your doctor immediately.
3. Frequent Infections
Frequent infections are symptoms of leukemia in which our blood starts producing an abnormal amount of white blood cells and the body cannot fight the infection effectively. Leukemia is often discovered in adults who complain of frequent fever and flu-like symptoms.
4. Difficulty When Swallowing
Difficulty when swallowing is a symptom commonly associated with cervical cancer or one of the first symptoms of lung cancer.
5. Swollen Lymph Nodes Under The Armpit or Groin
