CANCER GENERAL SYMPTOMS

Cancer symptoms vary depending on many factors, such as the cancer type, stage, size and location. The early stages of cancer may not produce noticeable symptoms. As the disease progresses, symptoms often become more apparent.
Some general symptoms of cancer include:
-Fatigue
-Unexplained weight loss/gain
-Fever
-Pain
-Change in appetite
-Nausea, vomiting
-Skin changes

Many symptoms share characteristics of other, non-cancerous conditions. If you experience any persistent symptoms or other changes in your health, it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible.






Diabetes Might Raise Risk of Liver Cancer

People with type 2 diabetes might be at somewhat higher risk of developing liver cancer, according to a large, long-term study.
The research suggests that those with type 2 diabetes have about two to three times greater risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) — the most common type of liver cancer — compared to those without diabetes.
Still, the risk of developing liver cancer remains low, experts said.
Race and ethnicity might also play a role in increasing the odds of liver cancer, the researchers said.
An estimated 26 percent of liver cancer cases in Latino study participants and 20 percent of cases in Hawaiians were attributed to diabetes. Among blacks and Japanese-Americans, the researchers estimated 13 percent and 12 percent of cases, respectively, were attributed to diabetes. Among whites, the rate was 6 percent.
