Signs & Symptoms
The signs and symptoms of cancer are myriad and vary by type of cancer and from patient to patient. You may experience one or more symptoms at any given time, while another person with the same type of cancer may not experience any symptoms at all.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms related to cancer include:
- changes in skin color
- changes in bowel or bladder function
- fatigue and/or malaise
- fever and/or night sweats
- pain, including bone pain
- unexplained weight loss and/or reduced appetite
- unusual lumps or bruising
It is important to note that having one or more of these symptoms does not mean you have cancer; many are common to other illnesses. It is, however, important that you discuss any new or unusual signs or symptoms with your physician.
