Cancer is one of the leading causes of rising death all around the world. Although there are several cancer treatments options these days, it is still better to prevent the disease from occurring. Going for annual health checkups and relying on its results does not exclude you from having cancer rather- recognizing the early cancer symptoms help in spotting the condition early and getting treatment as soon as possible.
Swallowing accompanied by vomiting or weight loss can be a sign of throat cancer or stomach cancer. A patient who experiences such symptoms very often must contact the doctor as soon as possible, and go through an endoscopy and a PET CT scan in Jalandhar of a neck, chest, and abdomen.
Persistent cough and chest pain
Generally, coughs go away in 3 or 4 weeks on their own but if it lasts longer especially if you cough up blood, then don’t delay to see a doctor. People who smoke and have breathing problems are most likely to be diagnosed with lung cancer.
Blood in urine or stool
If you experience continuous bleeding from the part of your body that generally does not bleeds, then you need to consult a doctor. It can be the case of colon cancer because bleeding normally lasts no more than two days.
Unexplained weight loss
Most unintended weight loss is not cancer, but yes, losing 10 pounds or more due to stress or thyroid could signal a problem. Excessive weight loss without a change in your diet or exercise habits can be a sign of pancreatic cancer.
It’s rare that pain or an ache can be a sign of cancer but an ongoing headache could be a signal of brain cancer. Ask your doctor about the tests and treatment.
Tiredness or fatigue
Are you feeling extremely tired from a couple of days and your fatigue is not getting better? Talk to your doctor and explain to him all the symptoms and your medical history. Also, don’t neglect to take the tests given by the doctor.
Again, if you experience any of these cancer symptoms, schedule a PET CT scan in Jalandhar with the experienced cancer specialist.
