In the world, every year, cancer develops 11, and seven million people die. According to the Croatian League for the Fight against Cancer, we have sick 25,000 people annually, and 12,500 dies.
Healthy life and prevention are the best defense against malignant diseases, but in no way does it guarantee security.
The malignant disease is very dangerous, it does not choose the victim, and when clear symptoms appear, it is usually too late. So do not rely solely on standardized tests, rather than listening to your body, and if you notice something unusual, different and unexplained, consult your doctor.
20 Signs Of Cancer Ignored By Almost Everyone!
1. Short breath
One of the first symptoms of lung cancer was a short breath and an inability to breathe in full lungs.
2. A Chronic cough or chest pain
More types of cancer, including leukemia and lung tumors, cause symptoms that resemble bronchitis or severe coughing. Some patients with lung cancer say that pain spreads all over the shoulder or even descends down the arm.
3. Common infections, fever
This can be a sign of leukemia, a cancer of white blood cells that occurs in the bone marrow. Bone marrow produces abnormal leukocytes that destroy the ability of the immune system to fight infection.
4. Hard swallowing
Swallowing problems are most commonly associated with esophagus or throat cancer, but they may also be the first sign of lung cancer.
5. Swollen lymph nodes or lumps on the neck, armpits or diaphragms
Increased lymph nodes are a sign of a change in the lymphatic system, which can be a sign of cancer.
6. Frequent bruises or bleeding that does not stop
Easy getting bruises or problems in healing wounds suggest that something is wrong with red blood cells and tiles, which may be a sign of leukemia. Over time, due to an abnormal production of leukocytes, white blood cells penetrate red and tiles that interfere with the ability of clotting and the number of oxygen-carrying erythrocytes.
7. Weakness and tiredness
General fatigue is a sign of almost all types of cancer, but also a number of other disorders (for example, thyroid work). But if you are inexplicably tired and more sleep is don’t enough to help, be sure to visit your doctor.
