Don’t ignore these warning signs & symptoms!

Discover what to look for below, and remember: knowing and spotting cancer signs and symptoms early can save your life.

What To Look For:

  • Any growth on the body, especially in or on the breast, nipple, stomach, armpit, groin, or neck
  • Change in size of an existing lump or swelling
  • Sudden or unexplained bulges in your body
  • Swelling or enlargement of a testicle
  • A mass on the left side of stomach
  • Enlarged spleen either under or to the left of ribs
