Signs and Symptoms of Cancer

1. Unexplained weight loss

Lost a lot of weight over a short period of time (a couple of months or less) that can’t be explained by changes in your diet . This may be a symptom of Cancer.


Almost all people with cancer will have fever at some time, especially if the cancer or its treatment affects the immune system. 

3. Fatigue

Fatigue is extreme tiredness that doesn’t get better with rest. It may be an important symptom as cancer develops. However it may happen early in some cancers, like leukemia. Some colon or stomach cancers can cause blood loss that’s not obvious. This is another way cancer can cause fatigue.

4. Pain

Pain may be an early symptom with some cancers like bone cancers or testicular cancer. Pain is a common symptom in people with cancer. However, it may help to know that up to 95% of cancer pain can be treated successfully.Back pain can be a symptom of cancer of the colon, rectum, or ovary. Most often, pain due to cancer means it has already spread (metastasized) from where it started.
Untreated pain can make other aspects of cancer seem worse, such as fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, nausea, constipation, sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety, and mental confusion.

5.Skin changes

A change on the skin is the most common sign of skin cancer. This may be a new growth, a sore that doesn't heal, or a change in an old growth. Not all skin cancers look the same. Sometimes skin cancer is painful, but usually it is not. Some of the changes that occur in skin in cancer : 

⇒  Darker looking skin (hyper-pigmentation)
⇒  Yellowish skin and eyes (jaundice)
