The female body is constantly changing. Sometimes these changes are completely normal, part of the process of growing up, maturing, hormonal changes, and sometimes they indicate a serious disease or cancer. These are symptoms that you should never ignore.
Breast changes. Let’s tell you right away that more breast lumps don’t mean cancer right away, but if you ask for one, it’s important to contact a doctor right away who will send you for all the necessary tests. Some of the changes in the breasts that you should also not ignore are:
- Indentations on the skin
- Retracted nipples
- Nipple discharge
- Redness or irritation of the nipples or skin of the breast
To determine the exact cause of these changes, the doctor will send you to perform all the necessary tests.
Flatulence. In most women, bloating is a completely normal occurrence and you should not panic as soon as it appears, after all, we are all bloated during menstruation. However, if the bloating lasts for more than a week, you should contact your doctor two, especially if you have noticed any other symptoms such as sudden weight loss or bleeding.
Bleeding between two menstrual cycles. Bleeding, even spotting, is by no means a normal part of the cycle, and if it occurs between periods, be sure to see a doctor. Also, bleeding after menopause is never normal, and in that case, be sure to visit a gynecologist.
Skin changes. Here, we think of changes in young people in the first place, because a change in the size, color and shape of young people usually indicates skin cancer. If you notice a similar change, be sure to call your doctor and do not delay.
Blood in urine and stool. In this case, it would also be advisable to contact a doctor immediately, especially if you notice blood for more than a day or two. Blood in the stool usually comes from hemorrhoids, but it can also be a symptom of colon cancer, so don’t play games. Blood in the urine often indicates bladder and kidney disease.
Changes in the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are small, round nodules that are found all over the body, and most changes in these nodules are due to some standard infections, but swollen lymph nodes are also caused by cancerous diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma. For this reason, it is a good idea to see a doctor if you notice that your lymph nodes are swollen, especially if you do not experience any other cold or virus symptoms.
Swallowing problems. Occasional difficulty swallowing should not be a big problem, but when it occurs frequently and is accompanied by vomiting and weight loss, then it should not be ignored because it can be a symptom of stomach cancer.
Sudden weight loss. Most women wish that their extra pounds somehow magically disappeared without any effort. Unfortunately, sudden weight loss can be a sign that something is wrong, especially if you haven’t tried at all. Weight loss will be followed by fatigue and constant tiredness.
Heartburn. This phenomenon is usually caused by stress and overeating in food and alcohol, and to make sure that nothing is more serious, change your diet for two weeks and monitor whether the heartburn will disappear. If you continue to have heartburn problems, be sure to see a doctor because it can be one of the symptoms of ovarian, throat or stomach cancer.
Changes in the mouth. If you are a smoker, periodically inspect the oral cavity and look for white and bright red spots in the mouth and on the inside of the lips. Both of these symptoms can be a sign of oral cancer, and if you notice them, visit your dentist or doctor.
High temperature. A fever that does not fall for days and cannot be associated with a cold or inflammation can be a symptom of leukemia or another blood-related cancer.
Humor. Most women are tired due to a hectic lifestyle, excessive responsibilities around the house, work and children, but extreme fatigue is never a good sign and should not be treated as normal. If you are constantly tired, even when you do not have too many obligations, you should contact a doctor, especially if you have other symptoms such as blood in the stool.
Cough. Most types of cough go away on their own after 3-4 weeks, but don’t ignore it if it lasts longer, especially if you are a smoker, have shortness of breath or cough up blood. All of these can be symptoms of lung cancer.
Pain. Cancerous diseases do not usually cause pain, but constant pain may indicate bone or brain cancer. If you feel unexplained pain that lasts longer than a month, be sure to call your doctor.
Stomach pain and depression. This is quite rare, but abdominal pain accompanied by depression can be a symptom of pancreatic cancer. However, doctors say that there is no need to worry if you have not had cases of this type of cancer in your family.
