There are fifteen (15) cancer symptoms you should never ignore. You might not think these are warning signs of cancer but they can be.
Change In your skin: A new spot on your skin or one that changes shape or colour could be a sign of skin cancer, or any unusual spot or marks. See your doctor and let him do a biopsy to take a closer look for cancer cells.
Nagging cough: If you don’t smoke, there is very little chance a nagging cough is a sign of cancer. Usually, it is caused by postnasal drip, asthma, acid reflux or an infection. But if yours doesn’t go away or you cough up blood, especially if you are a smoker – see your doctor for a test of mucus from your lungs or a chest x-ray.
Breast Charges: Most breast changes are not cancer. However see your doctor about any lumps, nipple changes, or discharge, redness or thickening or pain in your breast. He/she will do an exam and suggest a mammogram MRI and maybe a biopsy.
Problems when you pass urine: Many men have urinary issues as they get older, like the need to go more often, leaks or a weak stream. Usually, these are signs of an enlarged prostate but they could also mean prostate cancer. See your doctor for an exam and maybe a special blood test called the PSA test.
Blood when you use the bathroom: If you see blood in the toilet when you go, talk to your doctor. Bloody stool is likely to come from swollen inflamed veins called haemorrhoids. But there is a chance it could be colon cancer. Blood in your urine could be from a urinary tract infection but it may be kidney or bladder cancer.
Trouble Swallowing: The common cold, acid reflux or even some medicine make it hard to swallow once in a while. If it doesn’t get better with time or with antacids see your doctor. The trouble with swallowing can be a sign of cancer in your throat or the pipe between your mouth and stomach called the oesophagus. Your doctor will do an exam and some test like a barium x-ray
Bloating: You may have a bloated feeling because of your diet or even stress. But if it doesn’t get better or you also have fatigue, weight loss, back pain. Has it checked out? Constant bloating in women may be a sign of ovarian cancer. Your doctor can do a pelvic exam to look for the cause.
Topic: The real you.
Text: I Thessalonians 5:23 (CEV) ‘may your spirit soul and body be kept healthy and faultless until our Lord Jesus Christ returns.
Do you know that you’re actually a spirit; your body is just the house you live in.
You’re like your heavenly father who is a spirit (John 4:24). What you see whenever you use your mirror at home is your body, you won’t see the real you with your physical eyes. But when you look into God’s word you’ll see your true image for the word of God is God’s mirror. Use it every day and you will see great and wonderful things about the real you.
Dear father thank you for showing me my worth to you. I am very valuable to you and 1 think, talk and act like it every day in Jesus name only.
