http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-11098184 says about signs of cancer Eight signs of cancer * Anaemia * Blood in urine * Coughing up blood * Difficulty swallowing * Breast lump or mass * Post-menopausal bleeding * Abnormal prostate test * Rectal blood -------------------- end of quote ----------- It seems when any of the above occurrences are observed for prolonged periods, it may be vital to seek medical help.. It seems very helpful if we are able to seek treatment at early stages of cancer while cure is still within easy reach. What do you think?

If any are observed for prolonged periods? If I observed any of these things, I would immediately get myself checked out, even without reading that it has anything to do with cancer. Most of these things would probably cause a lot of discomfort.

Thanks for the comment. It seems there are communities where the discomforts mentioned could be taken for granted ... What do you think ?

If these types of these are being taken for granted and ignored, it is probably because the person doesn't have the money to go to the doctor. In such cases, knowing that it could be cancer isn't going to change that.
