Nowadays, cancer has become one of the most prevalent diseases in the world.
In 2016, approximately 1,685,210 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in the United States and 595,690 people die annually from this disease.
Some of the cancers that most commonly affect women are breast, colon, endometrial, lung, cervical, skin and ovarian cancers. Knowing these cancers and what you can do to prevent them or find them quickly (when they are small and easier to treat) can help you save your life. Breast cancer is the most common cancer that women may face in their lifetime. This can happen at any age, but the risk increases with age. Due to certain factors, some women are more likely than others to have breast cancer.
Women need to be well informed about the warning signs of cancer symptoms.
Here are 15 precursors of cancer symptoms that women should not ignore:
1. Breast changes
Most bumps are not cancerous, but your doctor should always check them. Inform them of changes such as skin hollowness, puckering of the skin, inward nipples, nipple discharge or redness and flaking of the nipple or breast skin.
Constant bloating can sometimes mean ovarian cancer symptoms. You will have a pelvic exam, blood tests and sometimes an ultrasound to be sure.
