Early Signs that Cancer is Growing in Your Body

Frequent fevers / Infections

This is the most common symptom of leukemia, a type of cancer that affects blood cells and first develops in the bone marrow. This triggers the development of more white blood cells than the body needs, which affects the body’s ability to fight infections.

Difficulty swallowing

This could indicate the development of esophageal or throat cancer. Sometimes it is a sign of lung cancer.

Swollen lymph nodes or lumps in the neck, underarm and groin

Any changes in your lymph nodes may indicate that there is something wrong with your lymphatic system, and unfortunately, it is sometimes a sign of cancer.

Excessive bruising and bleeding that won’t stop

It means that something is wrong with your platelets and red blood cells. Sometimes it indicates the development of leukemia. As time goes by, the number of leukemia cells grows bigger than that of red blood cells and platelets, which makes blood unable to carry oxygen and clot.
