Some of the cancers that most often affect women are breast, colon, endometrial, lung, cervical, skin, and ovarian cancers. Knowing about these cancers and what you can do to help prevent them or find them early (when they are small and easier to treat) may help save your life.
Following are the 20 neglected cancer symptoms :
1. BACK PAIN AND LOWER BACK RIGHT SIDE PAIN:
A lot of cancer patients indicated this as liver cancer sign. Also breast cancer can do this since the tumor presses back to the chest or spine and ribs.
2. CHANGES IN THE NAILS:
Fingernail changes could indicate several cancers. For example, a brown or black streak or a dot under the nail could be a symptom of skin cancer, whereas the newly-discovered “clubbing”- enlargement of the ends of the finger with nails that curve down over the tips- could indicate lung cancer. Furthermore, pale or white nails could sometimes be a symptom of liver cancer.
3. SWOLLEN FACE:
Many lung cancer patients have swollen or red face due to the fact that lung tumors block the chest blood vessels and restrict the blood flow to the face.
4. SORE/SKIN LUMPS:
Check every skin and as these lumps or bleeds may indicate skin cancer or basal cell melanoma.
5. RED/ SWOLLEN/SORE BREASTS:
A clear sign of breast cancer.
6. NIPPLE CHANGES:
The most common change before a final diagnosis is made. The nipple might be inverted, flat or sideways.
7. PAINFUL AND STRANGE PERIODS OR IN BETWEEN PERIOD SPOTTING:
This might be uterus cancer. Do a trans-vaginal ultrasound if you have heavier periods.
