Don’t rely on routine tests alone to protect you from cancer. It’s just as important to listen to your body and notice anything that’s different, odd, or unexplainable. Here are some signs that are commonly overlooked:
1. Wheezing or shortness of breath
One of the first signs many lung cancer patients remember noticing is the inability to catch their breath.
2. Chronic cough or chest pain
Several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung tumors, can cause symptoms that mimic a bad cough or bronchitis. Some lung cancer patients report chest pain that extends up into the shoulder or down the arm.
3. Frequent fevers or infections
These can be signs of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in the bone marrow. Leukemia causes the marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells, sapping your body’s infection-fighting capabilities.
4. Difficulty swallowing
Trouble swallowing is most commonly associated with esophageal or throat cancer, and is sometimes one of the first signs of lung cancer, too.
5. Swollen lymph nodes or lumps on the neck, underarm, or groin
Enlarged lymph nodes indicate changes in the lymphatic system, which can be a sign of cancer.
6. Excessive bruising or bleeding that doesn’t stop
This symptom usually suggests something abnormal happening with the platelets and red blood cells, which can be a sign of leukemia. Over time, leukemia cells crowd out red blood cells and platelets, impairing your blood’s ability to carry oxygen and clot.
7. Weakness and fatigue
Generalized fatigue and weakness is a symptom of so many different kinds of cancer that you’ll need to look at it in combination with other symptoms. But any time you feel exhausted without explanation and it doesn’t respond to getting more sleep, talk to your doctor.
8. Bloating or abdominal weight gain
Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer overwhelmingly report unexplained abdominal bloating that came on fairly suddenly and continued on and off over a long period of time.
9. Feeling full and unable to eat
This is another tip-off to ovarian cancer; women say they have no appetite and can’t eat, even when they haven’t eaten for some time.
10. Pelvic or abdominal pain
Pain and cramping in the pelvis and abdomen can go hand in hand with the bloating that often signals ovarian cancer. Leukemia can also cause abdominal pain resulting from an enlarged spleen.
11. Rectal bleeding or blood in stool
This is a common result of diagnosing colorectal cancer. Blood in the toilet alone is reason to call your doctor and schedule a colonoscopy.
12. Unexplained weight loss
Weight loss is an early sign of colon and other digestive cancers; it’s also a sign of cancer that’s spread to the liver, affecting your appetite and the ability of your body to rid itself of wastes.
13. Upset stomach or stomachache
Stomach cramps or frequent upset stomachs may indicate colorectal cancer.
14. A red, sore, or swollen breast
These symptoms can indicate inflammatory breast cancer. Call your doctor about any unexplained changes to your breasts.
15. Nipple changes
One of the most common changes women remember noticing before being diagnosed with breast cancer is a nipple that began to appear flattened, inverted, or turned sideways.
16. Unusually heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods
Many women report this as the tip-off to endometrial or uterine cancer. Ask for a transvaginal ultrasound if you suspect something more than routine heavy periods.
17. Swelling of facial features
Some patients with lung cancer report noticing puffiness, swelling, or redness in the face. Small cell lung tumors commonly block blood vessels in the chest, preventing blood from flowing freely from your head and face.
18. A sore or skin lump that doesn’t heal, becomes crusty, or bleeds easily
Familiarize yourself with the different types of skin cancer — melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma — and be vigilant about checking skin all over your body for odd-looking growths or spots.
19. Changes in nails
Unexplained changes to the fingernails can be a sign of several types of cancer. A brown or black streak or dot under the nail can indicate skin cancer, while newly discovered “clubbing”– enlargement of the ends of the fingers with nails that curve down over the tips — can be a sign of lung cancer. Pale or white nails can sometimes be a sign of liver cancer.
20. Pain in the back or lower right side
Many cancer patients say this was the first sign of liver cancer. Breast cancer is also often diagnosed via back pain, which can occur when a breast tumor presses backward into the chest, or when the cancer spreads to the spine or ribs.Here is what Dr Mercola explains:
“Whether you are a man or a woman, it’s important to watch for any unusual changes in your body and energy levels in order to detect any signs of cancer early on. The sooner you notice there’s a problem, the sooner you can begin to take the steps necessary to promote healing within your body.
Of course, ideally you should follow an anti-cancer lifestyle even before you notice any symptoms, as prevention is the best route when it comes to most chronic diseases. It is not unusual for 10 or more years to pass between exposure to a cancer-causing agent (tobacco, chemicals, radiation, cell phones, poor nutrition, etc.) and detectable cancer.”
This means you have enough time to affect the progression of the disease
Cancer is observed as a group of diseases associated with abnormal cells that grow and spread uncontrollably. Experts explain that “curing” the disease means controlling the growth of such cells and stop their spreading.
Human body has the ability to heal itself and this potency depends on your daily routines, dietary habits, physical activity, sun exposure and proper sleep. Healthy lifestyle, accompanied with the ability to cope with emotional stress, helps the body to maintain a normal and healthy balance.
Ignoring these health and lifestyle principles is not the only problem that is associated with cancer. Conventional medicine suggests applying invasive and risky treatments, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
It may be hard for you to believe, but latest landmark studies have found that certain cancers, even invasive cases, may disappear without any treatment, and this is absolutely possible, even though people cannot understand it.
What is even worse, experts believe that cancer patients are more likely to die from chemo and other cancer treatments than the disease itself.
Cancer deaths run at alarming death rates, and according to Dr Tullio Simoncini, an Italian oncologist, the mortality rate of the disease is 90 percent. This says much about the effectiveness or if you prefer, the lack of such treatments. Despite this fact, they are still considered as a gold standard of cancer treatment. Cancer rates keep rising and that is what worries experts most.
According to the American Cancer Society data, about one and half million new cases of cancer are expected in the US. This number does not include the cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer, which is about a million.
More than 1,500 people will die from cancer every day, which is one out of every four deaths in the US
According to the latest estimations, by 2030, about 26 million people a year may be diagnosed, and 17 million people will die from the disease. But, many of these cases can be prevented.
The American Cancer Society says that about a third of the expected 562,000 cancer deaths will be linked to obesity, physical inactivity, and malnutrition. Tobacco use will be the cause of another 169,000 death cases.
The lack of vitamin D from sun exposure is another commonly overlooked cause of cancer, and the good news is that it can be easily changed. Optimizing vitamin D levels will make about half of the cancer cases disappear.
What should you do if you suspect you have cancer?
The first step you should do is seek a guidance of a trusted and knowledgeable natural health care practitioner. This is a personal decision, and you should at least keep an open mind on it.
Most people decide to go for conventional cancer treatments like radiation or chemo, because they simply believe these are the only option they have. Luckily, there are much healthier and safer options, like baking soda, for instance, and we bet that you already have some in your kitchen pantry.
Sodium bicarbonate offers a natural form of chemotherapy. It kills off cancer cells without affecting normal cells, and of course it does not have any of the side effects of costs of regular chemo treatment. As Dr Mark Sircus explains, the only problem with this method is that it is super cheap. It cannot bring any profit which is why no one is eager to promote it.
Dr Simoncini has had an amazing experience regarding this method. According to him, 99 percent of all bladder and breast cancers can be healed within just 6 days, of course, without any surgery, chemo or radiation. His treatment involves using a local infiltration device, like a catheter, which would carry sodium bicarbonate directly to the affected tissue in the breast or bladder.

Dr Hamer’s German New Medicine (GNM) is another similar approach. It is based on the idea that every disease, even cancer, is caused by a sudden shock, and that every disease can be treated and cured by eliminating such underlying emotional traumas. Dr Hammer refused to disavow his findings and that brought him a prison sentence, because he was accused of treating his patients with unortodox technique. He lives in exile and seeks for asylum from persecution.
Keep your vitamin D level in optimal range
Cancer patients should understand that optimizing their vitamin D level is of crucial importance. Watch this vitamin D lecture and learn more about the correct levels.
Calcitriol is the most important steroid hormone in the human body. If your vitamin D level is at high range, this hormone is produced in large amounts in your bodily tissues. Unfortunately, most cancer patients suffer from vitamin D deficiency.
Calcitrol is also the activated form of vitamin D. It protects against cancer, because it induces cell differentiation and controls cell proliferation. Patients who are vitamin D deficient cannot make enough activated vitamin D. Large amounts of this vitamin are needed to control cell proliferation, which helps in reducing cancer. This methtod has no side effects and it is free.
If you have cancer or know someone that has been diagnosed with some kind of cancer, or even if you suspect you have cancer, watch this vitamin D lecture. It will help you raise your vitamin D level until you reach the therapeutic range.
12 tips on how to reduce the risk of developing cancer
As we already said, anti-cancer lifestyle will help you stay healthy and maintain the balance in your body. It will also help you prevent cancer. Here are some useful tips on how to improve your lifestyle and start living a healthier life:
- Optimize your vitamin D level. Get enough sunlight and consider proper and healthy supplementation whenever you cannot walk in the sun. If you have cancer and you take your vitamin D orally, check your vitamin D blood level regularly.
- Reduce or completely eliminate any processed foods, sugar and grain carbohydrates. The same applies to whole unprocessed organic grains, because they are quickly converted into insulin and leptin, and that is the last thing your body needs when it comes to treating and preventing cancer.
- Monitor your fasting levels of insulin and leptin. That is the end test and you can easily check it with the help of cheap blood tests.
- Normalize the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fats. Increase the intake of high-quality animal-based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil and avoid processed vegetable oil.
- Stay active. Exercising decreases insulin levels. Controlling your insulin levels is essential, as it will help you prevent cancer.
- Sleep enough.
- Make your diet plan according to your nutritional type. This principle has a powerful anti-cancer effect, but unfortunately, it has been long underappreciated. This is one of the basic anti-cancer strategy in many clinics.
- Stay away from environmental toxins. Avoid pesticides, household chemical-laden cleaning products, synthetic air fresheners and polluted areas.
- Be careful about the radiation produced by cell phones, cell towers, base stations and WiFi stations. Provide proper protection.
- Do not fry or charbroil your meals. Boiling, poaching an steaming are much healthier options.
- Use a tool that will permanently reprogram your neurological short-circuiting that may activate your cancer genes. According to CDC, emotions are responsible for about 85 percent of the disease. This may be more important than any other physical factor, so make sure you address this. The Meridian Tapping Technique is considered as an excellent approach.
- One third of your food should be raw. Eating 85 percent of your food raw is much better, of course, if you have no problems achieving it.
You will not find these and similar approaches and cancer-preventing treatments elsewhere, because, yes, conservative researchers have not formally ‘proven’ their efficacy. But, did you know that 85 percent of the conventional treatments used today are not proven neither?
Think about this. With a minimum effort, these tips can help you reduce the risk of developing cancer and recover if you have it. Give yourself the opportunity to live better. You can only gain, and it is your life that matters most.
