Common Sings and Symptoms of Cancer

Though each type of cancer has specific signs and symptoms, some symptoms are universal to nearly all types of cancer.

Such symptoms include:

  • Unintended weight loss, often rapid
  • General sense of not feeling well (malaise)
  • Fatigue that does not improve with sleep and rest
  • Unexplained fever or night sweats
  • Swollen though painless lymph nodes
  • Unexplained loss of appetite

Early symptoms are general and may indicate numerous health conditions other than cancer. However, early detection and diagnosis of cancer presents the best opportunity for successful treatment.

Possible cancer symptoms in combination with risk factors such as age over 50 years, cigarette smoking, or obesity are more suspicious.
