Considering the possibility that you may be diagnosed with cancer is downright overwhelming and terrifying.

It is just as important that you stay vigilant and get any possible symptoms and signs checked as soon as possible.

Here are 10 common cancer symptoms that most people ignore, but are a call for action.

Change in Bowel Habits

If there is blood in your stool or a mass is impeding the passing of stool in your colon, this can result in uneasy bowel movement as well as larger than usual or deformed stool.

Cancer Symptoms

1. Losing weight at a rapid rate (without being on a diet), gas, discomfort, digestive disorders, anorexia, recurring diarrhea, and constipation are the symptoms occurring most frequently in cases of lung, stomach, kidney and large intestine cancer.

If accompanied by a feeling of weakness, it can be a sign of blood loss or a lack of proper elements.

2. The pain of unknown causes, long-lasting stomach-ache can be the symptom of large intestinal cancer.

Low back pain can be a sign of kidney cancer. Pain in the chest can result from lung cancer. Bone aches can be caused by metastasis.
