Don’t mean to be Debbie Downer, but I just read This article on Reader’s Digest about 20 Cancer Symptoms Women are Likely to Ignore, and found it really educational.
I first expected it to be filled with the typical stuff you always here, i.e. breast lumps, bleeding, months of pelvic pain, but they actually got a lot more specific and even explained the science behind the symptoms, i.e. what could be causing it.
Now, if you’re anything like me (a hypochondriac), you read each symptom and decided that 17 of the 20 applied to you. But, in all seriousness, they were more clear than usual on how and when the symptoms should be considered serious.
So, in the interest of health (but not mental sanity), thought I would share this.
