1. Difficulties in urinating

When you have problems urinating like urine taking long to come out, pain while passing urine or blood in urine, you should book an appointment with your doctor because these could be symptoms of prostate cancer. 

2. Persistent coughs

Coughs that don't go away and often bloody should be a red flag to you. If you cough blood and sometimes experience difficulty in breathing, it could signal lung cancer especially if you smoke. 

3. Changes in your testicles

If you notice a lump or any heaviness in your testicles, you should consider seeing a doctor. Testicular cancer often starts with changes in the testicles.

4. Trouble swallowing

Some people have trouble swallowing from time to time. This could be accompanied by vomiting and also losing weight. You should see a doctor to check you for throat or stomach cancer. 

5. Persistent pain

"No pain, no gain" doesn't apply to cancer. Back pain, a headache that doesn't go away, abdominal or stomach pain could all tell that something is wrong so book an appointment with your doctor.
