Cancer Detection: Monitoring Your Weight

Monitoring your body regularly can help spot cancer early and save your life

Knowing the signs & symptoms is half the battle! It is important that you monitor your body to detect any red flags for early cancer detection.


Weigh yourself once a week. If unexpected weight loss occurs, then check your weight twice per week.



  • Weigh yourself at the same time of day, wearing similar clothing and preferably using the same scale.
  • Record the date and your weight.

Notice Something? Here’s What To Do Next:

  • If you notice an unexplained increase or decrease in weight (10 pounds or 5 kilograms) over a two-month period, consider it a “red flag”. It does not mean you have cancer. However, consult your medical team for a professional evaluation.
