The Characteristics Of Cancer Symptoms?
Afternoon, do people with early-stage cancer also experience drastic weight loss?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what symptoms of cancer do you actually experience?
Cancer refers to malignant tumors, which occur due to excessive and uncontrolled abnormal cell growth. Most cancers are not yet clearly known to be the cause, but genetic mutations that are influenced by the environment, unhealthy lifestyles, also exposure to radiation or harmful chemicals are strongly suspected to be the triggers.
Unfortunately, you don't explain the symptoms of cancer as you actually experience it. Therefore, it is also difficult for us to determine whether it is typical to indicate a cancer or not.
There are symptoms of cancer that can be known easily from the beginning of its appearance, but there are also new symptoms that appear typical after reaching an advanced stage. Because the body's metabolism increases to accommodate the excessive and uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells, cancer sufferers will generally decrease their weight dramatically. Usually, this condition only becomes apparent after the cancer reaches a more advanced stage. Even so, not the appearance of weight loss does not necessarily mean that you are free from the risk of cancer. Conversely, even if you lose weight drastically, it doesn't always mean you have cancer. Weight loss can also drop dramatically due to abnormalities in the thyroid gland, malnutrition, genetic makeup, physical activity fatigue, chronic stress, impaired absorption of nutrients in the digestive tract, chronic diseases, and so on.
Therefore, if you suspect a cancer in your body, even though there are no other typical cancer signs yet, including drastic weight loss, it's a good idea to have yourself checked by a doctor or an oncologist.
I hope this helps.
