Men: Do YOU Have These Cancer Warning Signs?

We guys like to think we’re bullet-proof.

Some guys won’t go to the doctor unless there’s a fork sticking out of their head… and men skip cancer screenings all the time.

Big mistake.

Catching cancer early is absolutely essential if you want to beat it.

And there are actually some warning signs you can spot at home.

Let me show you.

Here are the signs of cancers men are likely to ignore.

Difficulty Urinating: If you have a hard time going to the bathroom, like starting a stream, then you should get to the doctor. Every once and while is no big deal, but if difficulty urinating lasts more than a few days, it’s time to get checked out. Difficult urination can be a sign of an infection, but it can be due to prostate cancer. If you see blood in urine or semen, it’s also time to head to the doctor.

Testicles: Women are taught to look for changes in their breasts, but men are not taught to look for changes in their testicles. If your testicles feel swollen or extra heavy, or if you feel a lump, these can all be signs of testicular cancer. Testicular cancer generally strikes younger men, but we all must look out. The best way to check is in the shower, when you are soaping up.

Skin: Lots of men don’t wear sunscreen. That is why men over 50 are twice more likely than women to die from skin cancer. Your best way to keep this cancer away? Consistent screening. Visit a doctor once a year and have them check all over your body.

Mouth: We all have occasional sores in our mouths, but if you have a sore in your mouth that lasts a long time, this may be cancer. If you chewed tobacco, you especially must look out for cancer. Smokers are also at higher risk.

Chronic Cough: What is a chronic cough? One that lasts over three weeks. Yes, sometimes coughs last a few months after a cold or flu, but that is rare. There is also a persistent cough that comes with blood pressure medications. Otherwise, you should still get checked out.

Blood in your stool: Bright red blood when you have a bowel movement is usually a hemorrhoid or fissure. Darker blood usually means it is coming from higher up (stomach to small intestines). Colon cancer is the number-two killer of men, so we all need to be on the lookout. If the color of your stool turns much darker, it’s time to have a test.

Easy Bruising: We’ve all found bruises we don’t remember getting. But if it becomes common to have many bruises (especially in places you are not used to, like your hands of fingers) then you need to have some blood work.

Unexplained weight loss: Everybody wants to lose weight, but if you haven’t changed anything (diet or exercise) and you are losing weight, that can be a sign of colon cancer, leukemia and others.

Health and Happiness,
