    1. Sores that don’t heal

    Skin cancers may bleed and resemble sores that don’t heal. A persistent sore in the mouth could be an oral cancer and should be dealt with promptly, especially in patients who smoke or drink alcohol. Sores on the penis or vagina may either be signs of infection or an early cancer, and shouldn’t be overlooked.

    2. A lump in breast or other parts of the body

    Many cancers can be felt through the skin, particularly in the breast, testicle, lymph nodes and the soft tissues of the body. A lump or thickening may be an early or late sign of cancer, and should be reported to a doctor, especially if you’ve just discovered it or noticed it has grown in size. You may be feeling a lump that is an early cancer that could be treated successfully.

    3. Unusual bleeding

    This can occur in early or advanced cancer. Blood in the phlegm may be a sign of lung cancer. Blood in the stool (or a dark or black stool) could be a sign of colon or rectal cancer. Cancer of the cervix or the endometrium (lining of the uterus) can cause vaginal bleeding. Blood in the urine is a sign of possible bladder or kidney cancer. A bloody discharge from the nipple may be a sign of breast cancer.

    4. Change in bowel habits or bladder function

    Chronic constipation, diarrhea or a change in the size of the stool may indicate colon cancer. Pain with urination, blood in the urine or a change in bladder function (such as more frequent or less frequent urination) can be related to bladder or prostate cancer. Any changes in bladder or bowel function should be reported to a doctor.

    5. Recent change in a wart or mole

    Any change in color or shape, loss of definite borders or an increase in size should be reported to your doctor without delay. The skin lesion may be a melanoma which, if diagnosed early, can be treated successfully

    6. Indigestion or difficulty in swallowing

    While they commonly have other causes, these symptoms may indicate cancer of the oesophagus, stomach or pharynx (throat).

    7. Nagging cough or hoarseness

    A persistent cough may be a sign of lung cancer. Hoarseness can be a sign of cancer of larynx (voice box) or thyroid.

    8. Unexplained weight loss or fever

    Most people with cancer will lose weight during some period of their illness. An unexplained weight loss of about 5 kg may be the first sign of cancer, particularly cancers of the pancreas, stomach, oesophagus or lung.

    Fever is common with cancer, but is more often seen in advanced stages of the disease. Almost all patients with cancer will have fever at some time, particularly if the cancer or its treatment affects the immune system and reduces resistance to infection.
