Cancer is a very tricky disease to detect in its early stages. The signs and symptoms can be similar to those of other non maligns conditions. While it’s very important to have routine check-ups and tests sometimes this cannot be reliable. Any strange symptom that you find suspicious and unexplained can help you detect cancer on time. To save your life you need to be aware of what to look out for. Below are the signs considered to be the earliest signs for different types of cancer in your body.

1.Chest pain and chronic cough

According to some patients, pain down the arm as well as chest pain and cough are common for lung cancer. Some types of cancers like leukemia and lung tumors can even mimic symptoms of a chronic cough.

2. Recurrent fever and infections

Infections as well as frequent fever can signify leukemia which we all know is one type of a blood tumor that develops in the bone marrow. It makes the marrow produce abnormal white blood cells which later attack your whole immune system.
