Cancer. The Big C. No other disease, save perhaps heart disease, is so frightening to people. Perhaps it’s because so many individuals with the condition die. Maybe it’s the astronomical costs and intense treatment involved. Whatever the reason, for folks who fret over this issue so much, you’d think they’d be well versed in the various symptoms that signal you may have a problem. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. While a random search of the web can help, there are some other, old school signs to be aware of.
Of course, everyone associates lung cancer with shortness of breath and a disgusting discharge when you cough. But there are other symptoms and signs you should be paying close attention to. Now, most of these apply specifically to women. Doctors will tell you that treating one gender is always different than treating the other. In essence, there is no universal standard. Still, if you think you have any of these issues see your doctor as soon as you can. Early diagnosis is the key, especially when it comes to the Big C.
