Cancer is the second most common cause of death after heart disease. Cancer gives most people no symptoms or signs that exclusively indicate the disease. Consequently, individuals need to know the following symptoms that might point to cancer:
1. Persistent cough or blood-tinged saliva.
These symptoms usually represent infections such as bronchitis or sinusitis, but they could be symptoms of cancer of the lung, head, and neck.
2. A change in bowel habits.
Most changes in bowel habits are related to your diet and fluid intake, but they could be symptoms of colon cancer.
3. Blood in the stool.
Hemorrhoids frequently cause rectal bleeding, but because hemorrhoids are so common, they may exist with cancer.
