When we feel some discomfort, a slight pain or see some change in our body, we usually have the bad habit of not worrying. When these symptoms get worse, we ask for a doctor, but in many cases the available appointments last for at least two or three weeks. It is therefore important to know that there are certain symptoms that, although they do not seem serious, show that you are suffering from a more severe disease.
These are the 20 symptoms you should be concerned about!
1- Back pain and lower back pain
Patients diagnosed with liver cancer claim to have frequent back pain. Sometimes back pain may indicate breast cancer because the tumor presses on the chest and ribs
Whitish nails are often a sign of liver cancer, while brown spots on the nails may indicate skin cancer. In addition to this, the curvature of the nails can be a sign of lung cancer.
3- Swollen face
Patients with lung cancer have swollen and red face due to the fact that lung tumors block the blood vessels in the chest and limit the blood flow to the face.
4- Red, swollen, or tender breasts
It points to breast cancer

Changes in the nipple are the most common sign of breast cancer.

9- Breathing short
A potential sign of lung cancer.

Fevers and frequent infections can indicate leukemia, as infectious blood cells remove all energy shields from the body.

Swollen lymph nodes often indicate lymphatic cancer.
12- Fatigue or weakness
It is not very worrisome, but if it occurs repeatedly and without apparent cause it can be a sign of cancer.

This is a sign of leukemia, as this disease inhibits the transport of oxygen and leads to coagulation.
