7 Cancer Signs Women May Not Recognize

Cancer is a word no woman wants to hear, but when cancer signs are recognized early, women have a much better chance of treating and beating breast cancer, skin cancer, and other forms of cancer. To help with early identification, here are 7 cancer signs women may not recognize as potential early warning signals.

7 cancer signs in women

[1] Bloating. Many women are familiar with bloating, especially around the time of their period. But if bloating does not go away and lingers for weeks, it could indicate ovarian cancer. Other symptoms of ovarian cancer include pelvic or abdominal pain, having an urgent and frequent need to urinate, and feeling full even when you have eaten very little food. If these warning signs sound familiar, see your doctor.

[2] Nipple changes. Belly buttons are not the only body part that can be an innie or an outie. If your nipples normally are outies and one or both change to innies, that could be a sign of cancer. However, if one or both nipples have always been innies, then that’s probably their normal state. Changes in nipple appearance or the presence of nipple discharge (in women who are not breastfeeding) can be warning signs of breast cancer and should be checked.

[3] Pigment changes. Potentially deadly skin cancer called melanoma begins in the pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. Although people usually associated skin cancer with a change in a mole, cancer also can appear as pigment changes, especially in the early stages. Melanoma usually appears on a woman’s back or legs, although it can show up anywhere. See a dermatologist if you have pigment changes.

Hi, thanks for sharing this article with full of knowledge. Cancer is actually a dangerous disease, only the name leaves a dangerous impact. We can't even imagine the feeling of cancer affected problem. Cancer starts in your cells, which are building blocks of body. Normally, our body forms new cells as we need them, replacing old cells that die. Sometimes this process goes wrong. Old cells wouldn’t be able to die and new cell forms naturally that extra call forms a mass which we called cancer. Cancer in not only single disease but also creates many diseases.Keep safe and healthy!!
