12 Signs Of Cancer Mostly Ignored by Women


Twelve Cancer Signs Mostly Ignored by Women 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. We all know our bodies very well. That’s why when we notice a change, we should
all be on guard and take the necessary steps to ensure that nothing is wrong with our health. When we notice a new symptom or a new change,
it’s important to educate yourself about it by consulting your doctor. Before we begin this video, don’t forget

are mostly ignored by most women. 1. Changes In the Breasts: In many cases, a lump
on the breast doesn’t necessarily 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. You should also be sure to go for yearly checkups
at your doctor for a full body exam to ensure that your health is in good condition. 2. Bloating: According to Marleen Myers, an oncologist
at NYU Langone Medical Center, women are natural bloaters. If you’re a woman, you probably know that
you tend to bloat a lot while on your period or after eating a particularly carb-heavy
meal. But if the bloating does not subside and includes
weight loss or bleeding, consult your doctor. Constant bloating can be one of the common
cancer signs that many women ignore. It could be colon cancer, ovarian cancer,
gastrointestinal cancer, or even pancreatic cancer. Never ignore any unusual changes to your body! 3. 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 may be due to many different causes. Your doctor will want to rule out endometrial
cancer, so be sure to notice any changes to your menstrual cycle. 4. Changes In The Nails: A small brown vertical
stripe in one of your toenails might be a sign of melanoma. Dr. Phoebe Rich, a dermatologist at the Oregon
Dermatology and Research Center, states: “In more advanced cases, it can spread on to the
cuticle area or the skin around the nail. That’s an ominous sign — it means it’s
growing and spreading.” So if you notice any peculiar changes to your
toe nails, you might want to contact your doctor to ensure it may not be a sign of melanoma. Keep on watching to find out some even more
surprising cancer signs that are ignored by women. 5. Blood In the Urine Or Stool: In most cases,
blood in the urine or stool is caused by hemorrhoids. But it can also be a sign of colon cancer. If you’re bleeding from an area that doesn’t
usually bleed, consult your doctor. Especially if this bleeding lasts for more
than two days. 6. Lymph Nodes Changing: Lymph nodes help our
immune systems function, and act as filters for cancer cells and other foreign particles. Cancer in the lymph nodes can be life threatening. In most cases, the lymph nodes change when
they become infected. The infections are usually harmless and the
body fights them off. But in some cases, such as leukemia and lymphoma,
they also cause the lymph nodes to swell. If the swelling is present for at least a
month, speak to your doctor. 7. Can’t Swallow: It’s natural to have trouble
swallowing at times. But if it is happening often, and vomiting
and weight loss are also present, you may have throat or stomach cancer. If these symptoms have not subsided after
a few weeks, go speak to your doctor so he/she can properly examine you. 8. Unexpected Weight Loss: A lot of women wish
that they could magically lose weight. But if this weight disappears without any
extra exercise or a change in your diet, something might be wrong. In most cases, unexpected weight loss is caused
by stress. But there are times it is caused by pancreatic
or colon cancer. If you notice that you have not made any changes
to your diet or exercise regimen but are still losing weight, visit a medical clinic to rule
out the potential for cancer or any other illnesses. 9. Heartburn: Heartburn can be caused by excessive
food or alcohol consumption. It will eventually go away with time and rest. If the heartburn does not go away, or it gets
worse, it could be stomach, ovaries or throat cancer. In addition, constant heartburn will damage
the lining of the esophagus, which can develop into Barrett’s esophagus. This condition raises the risk of developing
throat cancer. Some people are more prone to heartburn. If you notice that you frequently get heartburn
after you eat, be sure to find out what types of foods trigger your heartburn. This way, you can eliminate those foods from
your diet and significantly reduce your heartburn. 10. Changes of the Mouth: For women who smoke,
look for white, yellow or gray patches inside your mouth. Cancer sores will also develop, which could
be a sign of oral cancer. 11. Developing a Fever: When people develop the
flu, they have a fever that will last a couple of days. But a fever that does not subside can mean
many different things. Leukemia and other blood cancers can be the
cause of the fever. If you have an ongoing fever and cannot determine
the cause of it, visit your doctor or the emergency room to determine what may be causing
it. 12. A Cough: Most people who develop coughs will
see it go away within four weeks. Any cough that lasts longer than a month should
not be ignored. If you’re a smoker or are having shortness
of breath with this cough, consult your doctor. A cough is the most common sign of lung cancer. If you notice that you have a cough for an
extended period of time and have ruled out a cold or any other illness, try to reduce
the amount of cigarettes you smoke daily (if you smoke), and be sure to make an appointment
with your doctor to determine what is causing your cough. Now that you know some of the most common
cancer signs that are ignored by women, be sure to keep your health in check and contact
your doctor if you notice any changes in your health. If you have a healthy lifestyle and a good
diet but notice that your health has recently changed, be sure to take the proper precautions
to ensure that you are not at risk for any serious illnesses. If you are not active and your diet needs
improvement, try to incorporate some healthy lifestyle changes into your daily routine. This can include creating a new exercise regimen,
reducing smoking and drinking, and making changes to your diet. There are many different signs and symptoms
which are ignored by women all over the world. If you notice that you have any of the symptoms
in this video, don’t panic. It is likely that you don’t have cancer,
but it is always a good idea to take the right steps in the event that you notice any lingering,
unusual symptoms. Before making any changes to your lifestyle
or your diet, be sure to contact a medical health professional. Never take your health for granted! What do you suggest women should do to maintain
