Every time something goes wrong with our body, our immune system responds by sending our conscious mind a sign that something must be done in order to preserve the overall health and wellbeing. That is also the case when one of the world’s deadliest diseases attacks our body, and yes, we are talking about cancer.

In this article, we are going to provide you with a list of symptoms and signals your body will send you if a tumor has started growing within your body. These are the signs you need to watch out for, and if you notice any, immediately consult with your doctor or go for a check-up:

  • Skin Itching

Since cancer is classified by the body as a bacteria, the immune system is fighting it with white blood cells. This causes an increased blood flow which causes skin itching.

  • Urine Changes

If all of a sudden your urine becomes bloody, foamy and has a strange odor or color to it, do a checkup.

  • Voice Changes

The voice of an individual is in most cases affected by larynx cancer, therefore, if you notice any change, contact a medical expert.

  • Wounds Don’t Heal

Another common cancer symptom is a wound that is healing either slowly, or not healing at all, as the cancer has taken up the priority of the immune system.

  • A Cough

Most types of cancer are represented by a cough that won’t go away, therefore if you are coughing badly for more than 2-3 weeks, it is time for a checkup.

  • Bleeding

Bleeding in between your period? Well this means it is time for a checkup with a doctor.

  • Tongue or Mouth Lumps

If you notice any white-colored bumps on your gums inside your mouth, they are another potential cause of cancer.

  • Lumps Under The Skin

The same goes for any lumps you may notice on your skin.

  • Stool Changes

If you have a change in your stool which lasts for more than 2 days, this can be another sign that something may be wrong with your body.

  • Loss of Appetite/Swallowing Problem

Anything which causes problems with the digestive process is of serious concern, as it affects the body’s ability to take nutrients from the food you are eating.
