Cancer Signs & Symptoms: Continuous Swelling & Bloating

Don’t ignore these warning signs & symptoms!

Although it is normal to experience some bloating, continuous swelling or persistent bloating can be a warning sign. These can be symptoms of cancer, but if you detect these symptoms early enough, you improve your odds of surviving. Discover what to look for below, and remember: knowing and spotting cancer signs and symptoms early can save your life.

What To Look For:

  • Bloated, hard, or puffy belly  (Abdomen) that does not go away with a change in diet or after bowel movement (31)
  • Swelling in the legs and arms that are hot feeling or have redness (28)
  • Face, throat, and neck swelling (32)
  • Swelling near a joint – rings too tight for fingers (33)
  • Regurgitating food (14)
  • Subtle tickle, scratch, or burning in throat (14)
  • Abdominal discomfort- cramps, gas, or pain (63)

Notice Something? Here’s What To Do Next:

  • Should you spot any signs, consider them a “red flag”. It does not mean you have cancer. If signs do not disappear within one week, contact your medical team for a professional evaluation.
