Fever, Fatigue and Persistant Cough
Good day Mars,
This is the last of the 15 Cancer Symptoms Women Ignore...
According to the American Cancer Society, fever most often occur after cancer has spread from its original site however can also point to early blood cancers known as Leukemia or Lymphoma. Other symptoms of cancer are jaundice or change is stool color.
So, if your fever is not associated with influenza or other infections, see your doctor for a complete medical history and battery of tests; chest X-ray, CT scan or MRI, depending on findings.
However vague this symptom can be could point to cancer, as well as other problems. This can happen after the cancer has grown or in early stages as Leukemia, colon or stomach cancers.
A cough is expected with colds, the flu and allergies and believe or not a side effect of medications. However, a prolonged cough which last for more than three or four weeks, should not be ignored. Again, see your doctor, make sure he or she do a complete medical history, examine your throat, check out your lungs perhaps through X-ray, especially if your a smoker.
Never forget, you come first, you always have! Prayerfully, you have already started practicing making healthy choices, and being honest with yourself and others too. I hope that you have had your fill of what symptoms not to ignore. Read 2 Timothy 1:7 & 3 John 1:2 and remember God loves you...
Blessings to your abundance of good health,
Jerri of Mars
