Don’t just rely on routine tests to protect yourself from cancer. It’s also important to listen to your body and notice anything that feels different, strange, or unclear.
Here are some commonly overlooked signs:
1_Wheezing or shortness of breath
One of the first signs that many lung cancer patients notice is the inability to catch their breath.
2_Chronic cough or chest pain
Several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung tumors, can cause symptoms that mimic a bad cough or bronchitis. Some patients with lung cancer report chest pain that radiates to the shoulder or down the arm.
Did you know that cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment? Cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment, but cease to exist in an alkaline environment.
3_Frequent fevers or infections
These may be signs of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that begins in the bone marrow. Leukemia causes the bone marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells, which undermines the body’s ability to fight infection.
Swallowing problems are most often associated with cancer of the esophagus or throat, and are sometimes one of the first signs of lung cancer.
5_Swollen lymph nodes or lumps in the neck, under the arms or in the groin
Enlarged lymph nodes indicate changes in the lymphatic system, which can be a sign of cancer.
6_Excessive bruising or bleeding that does not stop
