A woman’s body is constantly changing. The older she gets, the more her body will change. Unfortunately some of the changes that women go through may seem normal, but in actuality they’re not. In some cases, these symptoms can be cancer signs.
Because of this, it’s important for a woman to monitor the changes her body goes through. The human body has a way of telling us that something is wrong. When we notice a new symptom or a new change, it’s important to educate yourself about it by consulting your doctor.
The following cancer signs are mostly ignored by most women.
Changes In the Breasts: In many cases, a lump on the breast doesn’t mean cancer. But if you notice a lump on your breast, you should consult your doctor. Also, if you notice any nipple discharge, nipples turning inward, or any redness or scaling of your nipple, make sure you tell your doctor that as well.
Bloating: According to Marleen Myers, an oncologist at NYU Langone Medical Center, women are natural bloaters. But if the bloating does not subside and includes weight loss or bleeding, consult your doctor. Constant bloating can be one of the cancer signs. It could be colon cancer, ovarian cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, or even pancreatic cancer.
Bleeding Between Periods: If you’re continuously spotting between periods, go speak to your doctor. Any bleeding that is not part of the menstrual cycle can have different causes. Your doctor will want to rule out endometrial cancer, so don’t leave anything out.
Changes In Skin: You might notice a mole has grown bigger, or you’ve developed new spots on your body. This may seem natural, but these are common cancer signs. Your doctor will want to perform a biopsy as soon as possible, so don’t wait to tell him/her.
