By: Robert Thomson

Cancer is a group of sickness that can affect almost any and everywhere on the human body, either internally and externally so it is very difficult to identify any specific symptoms. However there are one or more warning signs which can be seen in the body which can make you suspicious in order to get a check up at your doctor.
In a lot of cases cancers are difficult to detect and may only show signs within the serious state of its growth when most of the damage is already done. One of the main signs of cancer can be an unexplainable growth in a tissue anywhere in or on the body called a tumor. The tumor may build up on its own or up against blood vessels, organs and nerves.
When persons go through fever or unexplainable weightloss, it may be a signal that a cancer is active. Almost all persons with cancer will get fever at sometime; the fever also makes it more difficult for the body to fight the cancer.
Unexpected feelings of extreme tiredness, are a huge warning signs for cancer. Cancer cells use up a lot of the body’s energy resources as it spreads, so these symptoms occur. The cancer also has the ability to reconstruct the order in which the body makes energy from food to cause excessive tiredness. Cancer can cause extreme and consistent pain in the body, this can also be a signal that the disease is worsening.
Different types of cancers lead to alterations in the tone of the skin which is a trait of sickness such as erythema, jaundice, hyperpigmentation and pruritis. Erythema is responsible for making the skin reddened, Jaundice adjust the skin and eye colors to a yellowish tone and hyperpigmentation produces a darker looking skin. Pruritis on the other hand is responsible for itching of the skin. Excessive hair growth can also be linked to the growth of cancer cells.
Cancer growth can also adjust the color and volume of a person’s urine and stool. This can lead to diarrhea, constipation. Dizziness, nasseau. Cancer cells are capable of releasing substances into the bloodstream that result in blood clots at different parts in the body. If there are also cuts anywhere on the body that don’t get better, that may also be a sign of cancer.
There are various cancers that can be identified by observing the skin. Finding a growth on the breast, lymph nodes, testicles or any soft tissue on the body may be a possible sign that cancer is a possibility. It is wise to check for changes in a mole, wart or freckle that changes in size, color or shape. All these signs are wake up calls to get a check up from a doctor
