A woman should be aware of the different signs and symptoms of cancer. This is because, while many women are aware of the common symptoms, they are not as familiar with some of the more subtle ones. It is important to know what to look for to detect cancer at an early stage.

In this video/article, we’ll go over 10 cancer symptoms and signs that women never ignore.

1. Irregular Vaginal Bleeding or Pelvic Pain

A new lump, dimpling, discoloration, changes in the area surrounding the nipple, or an odd discharge that you didn’t have before are examples of breast cancer signs. It is important to note that this symptom is more common in women who have already gone through menopause, but it can also happen to younger women.

3. Difficulty Swallowing

Difficulty Swallowing

For longer than two weeks, swallowing difficulties or the sensation that food is getting stuck in your throat could be symptoms of stomach, lung, or throat cancer.

4. Changes in Bowel Habits

Changes in Bowel Habits

Warning signs include persistent constipation or diarrhea, blood in the urine, tarry or black stools, blood in the stool, or black or red blood in the stool. Some malignancies, including bladder, prostate, and colon, can be detected by significant changes in body functions.

5. Chronic Coughing

Chronic Coughing

Coughing is a typical cold symptom. However, if your cough persists for more than two weeks without other common cold symptoms, it could be a sign of lung cancer or leukemia. Coughing up blood is another sign that something has to be attended to right away.

6. Bloating


Bloating is expected during your period or after a large meal. However, bloating that lasts longer than two weeks may indicate ovarian cancer as well as other gastrointestinal cancers.

7. Change in Skin Texture

An acute headache that starts suddenly and lasts for more than two weeks might be brought on by a brain tumor. Even after receiving medical care, it persists.

9. Frequent Fevers or Persistent Fatigue

Frequent Fevers or Persistent Fatigue

Frequent infections, fevers, and low energy levels may be early signs of lymphoma or leukemia, which compromise the immune system and increase your susceptibility to disease.

10. Unexplained Weight Loss

Unexplained Weight Loss

Unexplained weight loss could be a sign of cancer because the disease often causes people to lose their appetite and lose weight without trying to do so on purpose.

It is best to seek medical advice if you have been experiencing these signs and symptoms for several months. Cancer that is discovered early on has a better chance of surviving and may even be completely cured.
