4. Unhealed sores
From mouth ulcers that haven’t healed to scabs that have taken far too long to disappear, these scabs can be a sign that either your immune system isn’t functioning normally or that the type of cancer (like mouth or oral) is showing up on the surface.
5. Unexplained bleeding
If your morning cough has started to turn bloody or your normal discharge doesn’t look so normal anymore, it’s a sign that you need to see a doctor as soon as possible. Cancer’s like lung can take a while to develop enough for you to see the physical effects of it so as soon as you notice a change in your body, consult a professional asap.
6. Changes in bowel movements
While everyone’s bowel movements change depending on what food they’ve recently indulged in, if you notice things changing relatively quickly or have gone from solid to liquid or painful then it might be a sign that your intestines and bowel aren’t working the way they are meant.
It’s important to keep in mind that while being vigilant and taking notice of changes is vital, a lot of these symptoms and signs can be attributed to other less life threatening illnesses so before jumping to any conclusions, consult your local doctor and find out what’s going on.
