You don't need to panic, but you shouldn't assume these signs are 'nothing,' either. And why so many people blow them off instead of heading to the doctor.

Before you discount that persistent cough as just another part of flu season, you might want to ask your doctor to give it a second glance. 

1. Bleeding In Between Periods (women only)

A bit of spotting in the gap of time where you aren’t normally having a period can be caused by a change in hormone levels, cervix inflammation, stress and blood thinners.

2.Changes in Your Testicles (men only)

If you notice a lump, swelling, pain or discomfort, with or without swelling or any other change in your testicle, go to see your doctor as it may indicate testicular cancer which can grow quite fast. 

3. Problems When You Pee (men only)

Having an enlarged prostate gland is common among men as they get older and can cause some problems when peeing, such as the urge to pee more often, especially at night or trouble starting to pee or having a weak stream. 

4. Persistent Cough or Hoarseness


While a cough here and there is nothing to worry about, a consistent cacophony or a cough accompanied by blood is definitely cause for concern. 

5. Persistent Change in Bowel Habits
When your bowel movements aren't as easy as they once were or your stool appears larger than normal or somewhat deformed, this could be a sign of colon cancer, 

6.Persistent Unexplained Pain

"Most pain is not a sign of cancer, but persistent pain must be checked out.If you have persistent headaches, for example, you likely don't have brain cancer—but it is still something that must be looked into.

 7.Fever

Fever is very common with cancer, but it happens more often after cancer has spread. Less often, fever is an early sign of cancer, such as blood cancers like leukemia or lymphoma. Nearly all cancer patients will have fever at some point, especially if the disease or its treatment affects the immune system.
