In order to spot cancer and survive, you need to know what to look for
Below is a broad spectrum of important signs and symptoms common to a variety of illnesses, diseases, and cancers. Knowing them is necessary in order to monitor your body for early detection of any cancer or other abnormalities. The appearance of a sign or the feeling of a symptom varies for each person. Therefore, it is essential for you to know your body and establish what is your normal.
SIGNS are changes that can be seen by you or others.(9)
SYMPTOMS are changes that you feel.(9)
The list is NOT provided as a diagnostic evaluation, advice, or medical determination, but rather for information and awareness of potential health issues to be discussed with your medical team. If you are experiencing a symptom or seeing a suspicious sign, please consider it a “red flag”. It does not necessarily mean that it is cancer; it can be one of many other diseases. DO NOT ignore the finding. Detecting a sign or symptom early is only valuable if it leads to a timely medical evaluation and treatment, if necessary. CONSULT YOUR MEDICAL TEAM IMMEDIATELY.
