6 overlooked signs that point to cancer

There are many symptoms of a serious disease like cancer, but do you know that many common symptoms that we ignore, if they are paid attention to in time, then cancer can be treated on time.

In one of its articles, the British journal has described six symptoms that indicate cancer in any body.

Let’s know what these signs are that you should never ignore.

Abnormal lump or swelling on a part of the body:

If you are constantly seeing a lump on a part of the body and it is not disappearing, then take it seriously.

A study on cancer has warned that lumps or swelling around the neck, armpits, stomach, chest or breast can be a sign of cancer.

Britain’s National Health Service has advised that if the lump on your body is constantly increasing, then consult a doctor immediately.

Weight loss:

Unintentional weight loss can also be a warning sign of cancer.

Although minor weight changes are common, cancer research has warned that people who suffer significant weight loss without effort should contact their doctor.

Cancer can lead to weight loss for a variety of reasons.

For example, weight loss in bowel cancer can be caused by a tumor because it makes you feel sick or bloated, reducing your appetite.

Pain in parts of the body:

According to cancer research, you should seek medical advice for any permanent pain in the body because it can be a sign of something more serious.

Pain can be a sign of a tumor, for example, persistent sore throat can indicate throat cancer and abdominal pain can be a sign of bowel cancer.

Bleeding or bruising:

Bleeding or bruising without injury can be a warning sign of cancer.

According to cancer research, bleeding from blood or even vomiting or coughing in your stool or urine are symptoms that appear in many types of cancer.


Feeling stressed all the time or having trouble sleeping or feeling more tired than usual is also an alarm.

Internal bleeding of the tumor can cause fatigue because it can turn into anemia.

Unusual sweating throughout the night:

According to cancer research, having a fever or sweating too much at night can be a sign of an infection.

Sweating can also be the effect of some medications, but if you get too much and drenched sweating at night, you need to consult a doctor.
