We advise you to see a doctor as soon as you notice any of these symptoms or other similar changes. The sooner a disease is discovered, the easier it is to cure it. For example, 90% of women who find breast cancer at an early stage manage to fight it. Now, let’s focus specifically on the symptoms that many women overlook and should not:
1- Chest changes
Chest changes are certainly a sign that there is some problem with your body, but don’t be afraid. In most cases, lumps and formations are not cancer. Most lumps are due to hormonal changes. However, do not wait long before going to the doctor.
How to tell if you have a problem: Just watch yourself more often in the mirror and get a shower. If you feel unusual or see changes in the skin or breast shape (redness, wrinkled skin, bumps, indentations), see your doctor for advice. Breast pain before a cycle is completely normal and is due to changes in hormone levels that occur before each cycle.
2- Atypical excrement (unnecessary or harmful substances
If you notice an atypical smudge or flow, it may be caused by an inflammatory process or infection. Consult a doctor to get rid of the problem faster.
How to tell if you have a problem: If the flow is green, unusually dense, has an unpleasant odor, or is accompanied by itching, see a doctor. It is normal to have a slight flow, which is usually transparent or slightly off-white. Pre-cycle blood staining is also a common occurrence (usually up to 2 weeks before the cycle).
3- Heavy cycle
If your cycle is more or less painful, there may be a very trivial cause – climate change, stress, a change in diet, a change in physical activity, family burden. However, the cause can be very serious – myoma, endometriosis, thyroid problems. If you have recently noticed such changes in your cycle and have been going on for several months, it is time to see a doctor. The lack of a cycle or an extremely weak cycle are also worrying.
How to find out if you have a problem: It is very difficult to judge whether our cycle is weird or too copious when we only have personal experience, but there are a few basic things you need to know. If your cycle lasts more than 7 days and especially if the blood is bright red in the last days, this is a worrying sign.
4- More frequent urination
Frequent urination may indicate a kidney or urinary tract problem, but it may also be a symptom of hormonal imbalance. And if you urinate frequently and constantly thirst, it can be a sign of diabetes.
How to find out if you have a problem: Of course, sometimes we joke about going to the toilet too often and unnecessary fear. In fact, it is normal to go to the toilet 4-10 times a day if we drink the usual amount of fluids. If you go to the bathroom more than 10 times a day, or if you notice that you go much more often, even though you do not drink more water, then consult your doctor for guidance.
5- Unusual weight loss
Do not rejoice too much if you have lost a few pounds in a short period of time. If you have not changed your lifestyle and suddenly lost several pounds, this could be a symptom of Crohn’s disease, type 2 diabetes or even cancer. It may not be about something so serious, but the sudden weight loss is certainly a problem.
How to find out if you have a problem:
If you have lost more than 5 kg in the last 6-12 months without exercising and without changing your diet, you should consult a doctor.
6- You have unusual hair
If you suddenly have hair in places that you should not, or initially have hirsutism (atypical and excessive hair), it indicates that too much male hormones are produced in your body. Changes in your appearance are not the worst – such a hormonal imbalance can lead to infertility and metabolic problems, it increases the risk of breast cancer and the development of endometriosis.
7- Bleeding after menopause
Quite a few women notice blood on their underwear after menopause. This blood can be a sign of uterine cancer, cervicitis,leukemia, fibroids and other problems. How to tell if you have a problem: Women who undergo hormone therapy may have bleeding, like menstruation, for up to two years after the onset of menopause. But if you do not take hormones, you should see a doctor. Such bleeding is especially troublesome if menopause occurred a year or more ago and you suddenly have menstruation.[quads id=1]
