For the women, here are some of the cancer signs you shouldn't ignore;

1. Breast changes

Puckering breast skin, nipples turning inward, nipple discharge and redness of your breast skin could be signs of breast cancer. See your doctor if you notice any of these. 

2. Bloating

Bloating for a week or two can be normal in women. But persistent bloating could be symptom of many types of cancer in women including ovarian, colon, gastrointestinal and cancer of the uterine wall. 

3. Abdominal or periods pain

Having significantly heavier periods month after month should be looked into. Pelvic pain, irregular bleeding can be signs of cervical, ovarian or gynaecological cancers.

4. Post menopausal bleeding

Menopause is a period when there are no more periods. Meaning seeing blood at this time is odd. Should you be seeing blood then you should see your doctor as this could be a sign of cervical or uterine cancer.

5. Changes in your bathroom habits

Unless you take a lot of liquids, you shouldn't be visiting the bathrooms too often. Having the strong feeling to urinate or constant pressure on your bladder may be a sign of cancer unless you are pregnant.
