Early detection of cancer offers a great opportunity for treatment and recovery. Here are the most prominent symptoms and changes that may occur in the body and may indicate cancer, with symptoms of cancer in children.

There are more than 200 types of cancer, and the symptoms are often spread throughout the body or in certain parts of it.

Cancer occurs when abnormal cells multiply out of control and spread to another location.

The cells can invade and destroy normal body tissues, and cancer can spread throughout the body.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world.

Many medical studies have proven that in the event of early detection of the infection, this greatly increases the rates of recovery.

Cancer symptoms

As for the most prominent symptoms that may indicate infection with the disease, which may be useful in early monitoring of the changes that occur in patients’ bodies, according to what a report in Deutsche Welle quoted from the British “Daily Record” website, they are:

  • Unexplained weight loss.

  • Unexplained tiredness or pain.

  • Severe night sweats.

  • persistent cough

  • Loss of appetite and persistent bloating.

  • An unusual lump or swelling anywhere in the body.

  • changes in the skin;

  • A change in bowel movement, such as constipation, or blood in the stool.

  • Unusual vaginal bleeding.

  • Urination problems and blood in the urine.

These symptoms can be caused by non-cancerous diseases, but they should be mentioned to your doctor.

Breast cancer symptoms

Unusual changes in the size, shape or texture of the breast, including changes to the nipple or skin.

We stress that the appearance of these symptoms does not necessarily mean infection with the disease, but may be useful in monitoring and detecting it early, and it is necessary to consult a doctor regarding any of these symptoms.

Symptoms of cancer in children

The World Health Organization in Iraq said, on its Twitter account, that childhood cancer is associated with a range of warning symptoms that families and trained primary health care providers can detect, including:

  • fever.

  • Severe and persistent headache.

  • Bone pain.

  • Weight loss.

Deaths from preventable childhood cancers in low- and middle-income countries are attributed to:

  • Poor diagnosis.

  • Wrong diagnosis.

  • Delayed diagnosis.

  • give up treatment.

  • Death due to toxicity of the disease.

  • relapse.

The World Health Organization said most types of childhood cancer can be treated with medication and other types of treatment, including surgery and radiotherapy.
