Given that cancer is the second most common cause of death in the world, it’s shocking how many of those people went untreated until the final stages of the diseases when little can be done to help them. And this is out of no fault of theirs, because cancer is notorious in showing itself in seemingly harmless symptoms that we would dismiss as day to day problems.
Detecting the disease in its early stages is vital in effectively treating and “curing” it. That’s why we need to be vigilant about all the ways it may present itself through our bodies.
Here are some symptoms of cancer that you might ignore or consider to be harmless:
1. Sudden Skin Changes
You might consider a sudden change in skin to be related to the weather or diet. And while that may be the case, if its never happened before, you may be in for quite a shock. Freckles, moles, or warts that change in shape, color or size need to be examined for cancer. The disease has also been known to cause darker-looking, reddened skin, or yellowish skin and eyes.
