Men, heed these possible clues and find cancer early, when it’s more treatable.
Alcoholics, addicts and compulsive gamblers may ignore symptoms of cancer while they are practicing their addiction or using to cover symptoms. In recovery these symptoms can become acute or chronic interfering with recovery or leading to a relapse.
Experts say that men could benefit greatly by being alert to certain cancer symptoms that require a trip to the doctor’s office sooner rather than later. But when it comes to scheduling doctor visits, men are notorious foot-draggers. In fact, some men, would never go to the doctor if it weren’t for the women in their life.
According to Leonard Lichtenfeld, MD, men often need to be pushed by women to get screened for cancer. That’s unfortunate. Routine preventive care can find cancer and other diseases in their early stages. When cancer is found early, there are more options for treatment. That means there are also better chances for a cure.
Some cancer symptoms in men are specific. They involve certain body parts and may point directly to the possibility of cancer. Other symptoms, though, are vague. For instance, pain that affects many body parts could have many explanations. It may or may not be a sign of cancer. But you can’t rule cancer out without seeing a doctor.
