10 early warning symptoms of cancer in men



Many cancers can be cured if found early.  However, some cancer warning signs are often ignored or confused with another medical condition.

Cancer in men is as dangerous and common as women.  However, according to Dr. Leonard Lichtenfeld, deputy director of the American Cancer Society, men often rarely notice signs of abnormal changes in the body.  Therefore, many people skip the early stage - the golden time to cure some cancers.

 Here are 10 symptoms that warn the male body is having health problems, including cancer. However, having these symptoms does not mean that you have cancer.  It is important to listen to your body and seek early medical help and screening for cancer.

1. Having trouble when urinating

 As they age, many men have problems when urinating as more often, especially at night;  urination, burning sensation. The above symptoms are caused by an enlarged prostate.  But this could also be a sign of prostate cancer.  Common disease in men over 50 years old, causing death ranked second after lung cancer.

 In the early stages of prostate cancer, symptoms are usually not clear or appear similar to benign hypertrophic tumors such as excessive urination, urgency, incontinence, difficulty urinating, more severe urinary retention, urinary tract infections, hematuria.

In the late stage, the disease has symptoms of metastasis such as urination disorder due to invasive tumor in the bladder neck and ureter opening, bone pain.  Spinal metastases can cause compression of the spinal cord, limb paralysis, and sphincter disorders.  Pelvic lymph node metastases cause edema of the legs.  Men can ejaculate blood if the disease has metastatic seminal vesicles.

 In addition, blood in urine can also be a sign of cancer of the bladder, kidneys, or intestines.  Dr. Lepor recommends blood in urine is also a symptom of hemorrhoids, urinary tract infection, kidney stones ...

 Blood hematuria can also occur after vigorous exercise such as swimming, running, kicking, or traumatic exercise, but recovering after 24 to 48 hours.  To accurately determine your condition, you should see your doctor if you have blood in the urine and promptly detect dangerous medical conditions.

2. Changes in the testicles

 Dr. Herbert Lepor, President of the Department of Urology, Langone Medical Center at New York University, USA, warns: “If you notice lumps, swelling, or any other changes in the testicles, you need to see a doctor right away."

Testicular cancer is uncommon in men, accounting for about 1% of all cancers in men.  However, this is the most malignant disease affecting men aged 15-35.

 In addition to signs of tumor or abnormally enlarged testicles, the patient also has some symptoms such as: dull pain in the groin or lower abdomen;  scrotum feeling heavy, tight on one side;  may develop in the groin area;  abdominal pain (due to metastasis);  lymph nodes in the neck, chest pain, difficulty breathing.

3. Skin changes

 Your skin has dark spots similar to a mole, but is unusual in size, shape, or color?  This could be the first sign of skin cancer.  Skin cancer can develop in areas not exposed to direct sunlight, such as under the penis, inside the vagina, and in wrinkles of the buttocks.  Characteristics of the disease are dark skin, jaundice, yellow eyes, red rash, excessive peeling, itching ...

 Initially, the disease usually manifests itself as erythema or papules on the skin's surface resembling skin damage, usually with flaking or scabs.  Symptoms are similar to benign diseases such as psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema ...

In the development stage, there will be more characteristic symptoms such as bright, slightly transparent nodules with small nodules, bleeding surface, hairy root capillaries dilate or smooth surface, scar-like plaques, not clearly enlarged hairy root capillaries, sores and swelling.

4. Lymphadenopathy

 The lymphatic system is directly related to the immune organ.  When there are problems such as illness or infection in the body, the lymph nodes swell.  It is a sign that many lymphocytes are working hard to kill germs.  This can be seen easily in the lymph nodes in the neck.

 According to the study of Dr. Robert Ferrer (Center for Health Sciences, University of Texas, San Antonio, Texas, USA), with cancer patients, when touching, lymph nodes (especially neck area) can feel stiffness, especially the stage of already metastatic malignancy.  Lymph nodes are firm, stick to surrounding tissues, limit margins are no longer visible, pain is felt and firm density can be signs of lymphoma.

 If a swollen, unexplained pain develops in 2 to 4 weeks, you should see your doctor to see what is wrong with your body.

5. Difficulty swallowing, heartburn

 Some people experience difficulty swallowing from time to time.  When this condition does not go away and is accompanied by weight loss and vomiting, you should see a doctor because these are signs of nasopharyngeal cancer, stomach cancer.

 Likewise, heartburn is also a warning symptom of these two cancers.  Usually, heartburn is related to stomach problems such as inflammation, ulcers, flatulence ... But heartburn can also lead to damage to the lining of your esophagus, making you more susceptible to cancer.

6. White & red array in mouth 

 Smokers have a higher risk of oral cancer.  Watch out for unusual white, red, gray, or yellow arrays on the lips, in the mouth.

 Patients with oral cancer also suffer from many sores for many days that do not go away.

7. Unusual weight loss

 Unusual weight loss does not necessarily mean that you have cancer.  It can come from stress, fatigue, loss of appetite, digestive problems.  However, you should also be cautious of cancers of the pancreas, stomach, or lungs if you suddenly lose weight.

 With signs of weight loss, cancer patients often suffer from anorexia, fatigue, even when at rest.  It can happen as soon as the patient has leukemia like cancer.  In addition, some cancers such as the colon or stomach can cause blood loss and lead to fatigue.

8. Fever, cough

 Fever is the most difficult to detect when suffering from cancer.  Because it is often confused with other infectious pathology such as colds, dengue fever.

 However, fever is characteristic of people with cancer, especially when the tumor has metastasized or showed systemic.  Fever can also be an early sign of leukemia.  Besides, coughing, coughing up blood are common symptoms of lung cancer.

9. Chest and mammary glands have abnormal tumors

 Men often ignore lumps on the breast or chest.  According to Dr. Marleen Meyers, NYU Perlmutter Cancer Center, USA, this is the reason why men can easily detect breast cancer in the late stage.

 Most men with breast cancer are between the ages of 50 and 60, but there are cases infecting the disease when they are still very young.  With breast cancer, at first, the patient feels a small, stiff, painless lump that is only mildly painful.  Lumps usually appear in the nipples or areola.

 Other signs include receding nipples, shrinkage, fluid in the head, head-skin ulcers, palpation of axillary lymph nodes.  In addition, breast cancer also manifests itself as redness, protruding - the surface of the skin around the breast area.

10. Pain, depression

 Most cancers do not cause pain.  However, when you have body aches or any other area of ​​your body for more than a month, do not be subjective.  Because this can be a sign of bone cancer, brain cancer or even a warning of a malignant tumor that has metastasized, the disease has entered a terminal stage.

 In addition, depression and stomach pain are rare signs in people with pancreatic cancer.  According to World Health Organization statistics, pancreatic cancer is only 14th in terms of incidence but 7th in mortality.  Prognosis of pancreatic cancer is not satisfactory.  The 5-year average survival rate of pancreatic cancer is only about 9.3%.
