There are so many myths about cancer. This article will touch on some of the more popular ones.
It is commonly thought that breast cancer can be spread by the air we breathe, especially if it is noticed early enough, and has therefore been given the title, “the silent killer”. Unfortunately, this myth has been exposed to be a major fallacy; breast cancer cannot spread by the air we breathe!
Think about that for a minute. Imagine if the mass media or even your parents had said that you could contract a very serious disease by simply breathing in the wrong way! That would put an end to any future fears, right?
However, it is not just cancer that you should be concerned about, there are also the many early warnings of cancer. By looking at these early signs of cancer, it is possible to see if there is a problem before it has got serious, and has you very worried.
The earliest early warning of cancer, apart from the cancer itself, is when you start to get symptoms that suggest a cancer problem, but aren’t actually cancer at all. These symptoms may be cancer related, but they may also be a normal part of life.
It’s common for people to notice tummy and stomach ulcers. Another sign of cancer is to have liver or kidney problems. Both these conditions can affect a person’s body positively – not by making the person ill, but by healing the body of excess mucus and bacteria, which can cause cancer.
Problems in the cervix are another sign of cancer. Not only is there a lump of abnormal tissue in the cervix, but the lining can be visibly thickened by the presence of cancer cells.
Miscarriage is one of the earliest warnings of cancer, asthe lining of the womb (uterus) can be damaged by the placenta, and cancer can develop there too. It is normal for the lining of the womb to be damaged by the placenta, so it is a good idea to try to keep the placenta away from the womb at all times.
Signs of early warning of cancer can start to appear in the body even before the cancer has got to stage three. Most people who notice the symptoms are aware that they need to go to the doctor, as the symptoms tend to become more obvious with each passing day.
When it comes to spotting cancer, most people who detect a problem take it for granted and don’t take steps to make sure that they have caught it before it spreads too far. The most important thing to do, however, is to look out for these early warning signs of cancer.
If you notice that you are starting to notice any of these early warning signs of cancer, it is best to have a look at your health and check to see if anything is wrong. By doing this, you will have avoided what could have been the worst thing that could happen – cancer.
