What are the early symptoms of cancer for women?

What are the early symptoms of breast cancer in women?

Signs and symptoms may appear that indicate that a person has one of the types of cancer, it is necessary not to ignore the symptoms that we refer to in the article. Early diagnosis of cancer is the key to successful treatment.

Can cancer be diagnosed in the early stages?

Some types of cancer can be diagnosed more easily than others. For example, certain types of skin cancer can be diagnosed with the naked eye.

On the other hand, other types of cancer can grow for 10 years or more without showing any symptoms and be more difficult to diagnose and treat.

Cancers that do not cause symptoms in the early stages:

testicular cancer

cervical cancer

Pancreas cancer

breast cancer

stomach cancer

Colon Cancer

kidney cancer

 Early symptoms of cancer in both women and men

 Early diagnosis is very important to prevent cancer growth and spread, as it is easier to treat cancer in its early stages when it is smaller. 

Here we have collected some early signs and symptoms of cancer for women and men, including:


A person develops a loss of appetite when suffering from various diseases, from depression to the flu, that makes a person feel full. Cancer also can cause loss of appetite by altering metabolism, the way your body converts food into energy.

Cancers of the stomach, pancreas, colon, and ovary can also press on your stomach and make you feel very full.

Presence of blood in stool

Cancer can cause bleeding, but bleeding may occur from various causes, such as stomach ulcers, hemorrhoids, or infections. 

When you see red in your stool, it's most likely blood from somewhere in your digestive system, which means your esophagus, stomach, or intestines.

One way to tell the source of the blood is by the color of the blood. A bright red color may indicate that the bleeding is in the rectum or at the end of the intestine. 

The dark color may indicate that the source of the bleeding is from above, such as a stomach ulcer.

Regardless of the cause, blood in the stool should be checked. You may need a colonoscopy or other tests to find the problem.

Presence of blood in urine

When blood appears in the urine, it may be a sign of a urinary tract problem. Kidney or bladder cancer can cause these symptoms, but it can also be due to an infection, kidney stones, or kidney disease.

frequent cough

A cold or the flu can cause a cough, but it may be an indication of lung cancer. In addition, the patient may suffer from symptoms such as chest pain, weight loss, hoarseness, fatigue, and shortness of breath. See your doctor if you can't get rid of it, especially if you are a smoker.

extreme tiredness

It is one of the most common symptoms of cancer. We're not talking about a normal type of fatigue - it's fatigue that doesn't go away. If your activity level changes or you don't feel energetic after getting more sleep, see your doctor.

night sweats

Sweating while sleeping can also be a sign of cancer. The most common types of cancers associated with night sweats are leukemia and lymph node cancer.

solid lumps appear

Some types of cancer can be detected in the early stages by touch. For example, lumps appear in the early stages of breast or testicular cancer. But most of the time these bumps are benign.

Early symptoms of breast cancer

The presence of a lump in the breast is not conclusive evidence of cancer. But see a doctor, especially if it stays longer than two weeks.

Other symptoms to watch out for include:

Changes in the breast or nipple

Breast swelling (with or without a lump).

A lump in the armpit or collarbone.

Nipple discharge, either bloody or transparent.

Sunken nipples that retract into the breast.
