Cancer Symptoms Women Shouldn’t Ignore

– Do you know what cancer
symptoms women shouldn’t ignore? (gentle music) One in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancers that most affect
women are breast, colorectal, endometrial, lung, cervical,
skin, and ovarian cancers, although women can get other
types of cancers as well. The earlier you catch the cancer, the more likely you’ll survive. These are the cancer symptoms
women shouldn’t ignore. Unexplained weight loss. Now, most women are happy to lose weight, especially if you’re overweight. And if you’re obese, losing weight by increasing your activity and making healthier dietary choices can actually help curb your cancer risk. But since cancer grows fast
and uses up your body stores, if you’re losing weight,
more than 10 pounds suddenly without trying by dieting or exercising, you need to talk to your
healthcare provider. Constant fatigue. Most of us get tired after a
busy week with lots of stress. Fatigue shouldn’t be so
great that it’s interfering with your work or leisure activities. And getting enough rest should
raise your energy levels, but cancer uses, again,
a lot of energy stores. So constant extreme
fatigue can be a symptom you should not ignore. Loss of appetite. If you feel full all the
time or are never hungry, it could be a symptom of ovarian or gastrointestinal cancers, including pancreatic or liver cancer. Appetite changes should not be ignored. Pain in the pelvis or abdominal area. Ongoing abdominal pain or discomfort, including gas, indigestion, pressure, bloating, and cramps, can signal ovarian, uter,
or gastrointestinal cancers. Changes in your bathroom habits. Now, suddenly needing
to urinate all the time or feeling constant
pressure on your bladder. Urinary tract infections
usually are accompanied by pain and burning. Pregnancy and uterine fibroids can also cause bladder pressure and the need to urinate frequently. But if you’re not pregnant, you should not ignore
the changes in urination. Persistent indigestion or nausea. Many people take antacids like candy rather than get checked. Persistent indigestion
or nausea can be a sign of esophageal, stomach, pancreatic, liver, or even ovarian cancer. Play it safe and see
your healthcare provider. Changes in your bowel habits. As we got older, we become more concerned about how often we poop. But really a significant change in your bowel movements may be a sign of something externally
pressing on the colon or even within the colon by advanced stage
gynecological or colon cancer. Blood in your bowel movement that’s unrelated to hemorrhoids
also needs to be checked. Rather than be scared of our bodies, it’s best to know them well. Paying attention to your
normal body functions helps us know when something is wrong. We have these conversations in our hormone support group all the time because we all need help learning how to become our own body whisperers.

experience irregular bleeding. If you have already
gone through menopause, any bleeding, spotting
included, should be evaluated. If you haven’t gone through menopause yet, see your doctor if you experience
bleeding between periods, heavy bleeding, or bleeding during sex. This can be a sign of
cervical or vaginal cancer. Changes in your breast. Most breast cancers are
detected by women themselves during their routine daily activities like bathing, shaving,
and even scratching. Be alert for lumps in
the breast or armpit, and also be on the lookout for changes in the skin on your breast, changes in the look and
feel of your breast, and abnormalities in your
nipples or discharge. Check out my next video on how to tell if you have breast cancer.
