While you may not realize it yet your body is always showing you things about yourself you aren’t aware of. Listening to your body will be able to provide you with some very helpful information.
When we pay attention to our bodies we can be given hints for spotting things like cancer and other diseases we would often overlook. There are many indirect signs we can look for when considering an illness such as cancer. Below I will list the 21 most common symptoms.
Signs You Should Always Be Looking For
- Shortness of Breath
Many lung cancer patients have mentioned noticing this as one of their very first signs. However, initially, it was not found to be connected with cancer.
2. Infections and Fevers
This can be a sign of leukemia. For those of you who are not familiar with leukemia, it is a cancer of the blood cells that begins in the bone marrow. It forces the marrow itself to produce strange white blood cells that work against your bodies ability to fight infection.
3. Upset Stomach
Frequent stomach cramps and stomach issues of all sorts can be one of the early signs of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is colon cancer and rectum cancer. It is the leading type of cancer in males and the fourth in females.
4. Lower Back Pain
This is often a sign of liver cancer. Of course, sadly this can also be a sign of breast cancer as well. That is because breast tumors can press backward into the chest and spread pain to the spine or ribs. The pain will often stay closer to the right side.
