Cancer is the uncontrolled proliferation of cells in several places of the body, including the breast, kidney, lungs, and mouth, to name a few of them.
The following are some of the symptoms that may indicate that you have cancer:
1. Difficulty in Swallowing
Sometimes it can be difficult to swallow because you have the common cold, acid reflux, or even because you are on certain medications. If it doesn’t get better with time or with antacids, you should probably see a doctor about it. When you have trouble swallowing, it could be an indication that you have cancer in your throat or in the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach (the esophagus). Your doctor will examine you and perform certain tests, such as an x-ray called a barium x-ray, which requires you to drink a chalky fluid so that the image of your throat may be seen more clearly.
2. Acid reflux or gastrointestinal upset
Almost everybody has experienced this searing sensation at some point in their lives, and the most common causes are diet and stress. If making adjustments to your lifestyle do not alleviate your symptoms and your indigestion persists, your primary care physician may need to order certain diagnostic tests to determine the root of the problem. It’s possible that this is an early sign of stomach cancer.
There are times when having a fever is actually beneficial. It may just be an indication that your body is attempting to fight off an illness in certain instances. It is also a possible side effect of taking some medications. On the other hand, a rash that does not clear up and does not appear to have any obvious reason may be an indicator of blood malignancy such as leukemia or lymphoma.
