Many men ignore some of the signs that may indicate the onset of cancerous tumors in their bodies, so it is imperative to know these symptoms to diagnose them immediately, through a specialist doctor and to receive treatment.
The website “webmd” concerned with health, listed a set of signs indicating cancer, which should not be ignored.
1- Changes in the testicles:
“If you notice a lump, heaviness, or any other change in your testicles, never delay the tests, in addition to testicular cancer, unlike the prostate, which is fast spreading,” says Herbert Leibor, chief of urology at New York University’s Langone Medical Center.
2- blood in urine or stools:
These could be among the first signs of bladder, kidney or colon cancer, and Libor says it is essential to consult a doctor immediately if you have any abnormal bleeding, even if you do not have other symptoms.
3- Urination problems:
Many men suffer from problems with urination as they get older, such as, urinating frequently, especially at night, feeling a burning sensation during the process of urination and irregular flow of urine, and usually an enlarged prostate gland causes these symptoms as well as prostate cancer, so you should consult a doctor for the necessary tests.
4- Skin changes:
When you notice any changes in the size, shape or color of the skin, they may be a sign of skin cancer, so it is imperative to consult your doctor for the necessary tests.
5- Difficulty swallowing:
Some people have difficulty swallowing from time to time, and both with weight loss and vomiting, this may indicate cancer of the throat or stomach.
You can take care of most cases of heartburn by eating a healthy diet and reducing stress levels. Heartburn that does not go away or gets worse indicates stomach or throat cancer.
7- Mouth changes:
If you smoke or chew tobacco, you are at higher risk of developing mouth cancer, so you should pay attention to white, red, gray, or yellow spots inside your mouth or on your lips.
8- Losing weight without trying:
Sudden weight loss without dieting is unhealthy and worrisome, and one of the signs of cancer of the pancreas, stomach or lungs.
If the fever does not go away for a long time, this may indicate leukemia, so you should consult a doctor immediately.
Many types of cancers cause deep bone fatigue that does not improve at all, in contrast to the fatigue you feel after exerting hard effort in your daily life, so it is imperative to consult a doctor for a diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
For non-smokers, coughing for a period of time extending for a month or several weeks is not normal, because prolonged coughing is a sign of lung cancer, so it is best to conduct urgent medical examinations.
Constant pain can be a sign of many types of cancer, including bone or brain cancer.
13-Abdominal pain and depression:
Although it is rare, depression and stomach pain can be a sign of pancreatic cancer.
