How to recognize cancer in the early stages

Octo­ber 27, 2017, 22:45

It is extreme­ly dif­fi­cult to detect the first symp­toms of oncol­o­gy. Usu­al­ly, a per­son seeks med­ical help when can­cer cells have already spread through­out the body and it is almost impos­si­ble to stop the dis­ease. This is espe­cial­ly true for peo­ple who do not reg­u­lar­ly under­go med­ical exam­i­na­tions and go to doc­tors only in emer­gency cas­es.

How­ev­er, Amer­i­can doc­tors have named sev­er­al signs by which it is pos­si­ble to deter­mine the pres­ence of can­cer in the ear­ly stages of the dis­ease. If a per­son has dis­cov­ered at least one of the signs, you should imme­di­ate­ly make an appoint­ment with a doc­tor in order to under­go the nec­es­sary exam­i­na­tion and stop the dis­ease in time.

1. Fatigue

Many often feel tired due to over­work and too fast pace of life. But if a per­son is often sleepy, even if he is not over­tired and well rest­ed, this should alert and become a rea­son for con­tact­ing a doc­tor. Drowsi­ness and fatigue can be signs of leukemia, colon and stom­ach can­cer.

2. Weight loss

If a per­son began to lose weight, but at the same time his lifestyle and diet did not change, this is an occa­sion to think about the cause of unex­plained weight loss, which is one of the symp­toms of can­cer.

Anoth­er thing is if you planned to get rid of extra pounds and made some efforts to achieve the goal (diet, exer­cise). But if the weight goes away on its own, while the lifestyle has not changed, you need to see a doc­tor and find out the rea­son.

Weight loss can be a sign of pan­cre­at­ic, stom­ach, esophageal, or lung can­cer.

3. Increase in body temperature

Slight­ly ele­vat­ed body tem­per­a­ture (from 37.6 to 38.2 C0)that does not go away is an impor­tant sign that some­thing is wrong in the body. Accord­ing to doc­tors, a con­stant­ly ele­vat­ed body tem­per­a­ture may indi­cate that can­cer cells have appeared in the body.

4. Pain symptoms

Symp­toms of can­cer of the throat, lar­ynx, esoph­a­gus and tongue can be rec­og­nized by pain. If it hurts to swal­low for a long time, there are dis­com­fort in the throat area, hoarse­ness and sores on the lips or in the mouth that do not heal for a long time — do not hes­i­tate with the exam­i­na­tion and seek med­ical help in a time­ly man­ner to pre­vent the devel­op­ment of can­cer.
