British oncologists have discovered an unexpected sign of one of the most dangerous types of cancer. It is reported by the Daily Express.
According to experts, pallor of the skin may indicate anemia, which manifests itself when there is an acute lack of iron in the body due to intestinal cancer. The main symptoms of this disease are blood in the stool, changes in bowel function and constant pain in the lower abdomen. If any of these symptoms persist for at least three weeks, seek immediate medical attention. It is noted that unexplained weight loss may also indicate cancer.
Earlier, doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov named the main signs of pancreatic cancer. According to him, there are three classic symptoms of the disease: stomach pain, jaundice and weight loss. He also reported that other indirect symptoms of pancreatic cancer are the occurrence of thrombophlebitis, inflammation of the lymph node above the left collarbone and metastasis in the navel.
