Doctors always recommend paying special attention to warning signs that might indicate undiagnosed cancer. Early detection of this disease increases the chances of successful treatment. Although the warning signs and symptoms in this post might not necessarily mean cancer in all cases, you shouldn’t neglect them. Instead, analyze the signs and symptoms you do experience, and then visit your doctor.

There are over 200 cancer types, the most common being lung, breast, prostate, bladder, ovarian, kidney (renal), colorectal, endometrial and pancreatic cancer, as well as leukemiaand melanoma. For most of these types of cancer, the survival rate is poor, especially forlung cancer. The reason is the late detection when the cancer is already in an advanced stage, which impedes the treatment process.

Take a look at some of the most common signs and symptoms of cancer. In case you experience them, make sure you address them properly.

  1. 1 Unexplained Weight Loss

    This is one of the initial noticeable cancer signs, especially for solid tumor cancers like lung and breast cancer. Once cancer reaches the liver and disrupts its functioning associated with removing toxins and regulating appetite, it causes weight loss. But this can as well be a warning sign of digestive types of cancer, like colon cancer.

    • 40% of all cancer patients report this warning sign at the time of diagnosis
    • up to 80% of advanced cancer cases are experiencing cachexia (general ‘wasting’) and unexplained weight loss

    Losing weight by watching your diet or exercising is normal. In all other cases, losing up to 10% of your weight, or up to 10 pounds a month in a 6-month span is likely a cause for concern.

  2. 2 Fatigue and Weakness

    If your fatigue and weakness don’t disappear even when you rest or get more sleep, consult your doctor ASAP since it might be a warning symptom of many cancers.
