Be Clear on Cancer - Abdominal Symptoms

There are a number of possible warning signs of cancer. For example, many people know that a lump in the breast could be a symptom of
cancer. But there are other warning signs too, including tummy troubles.

Persistent tummy troubles that can be possible signs of cancer include:

• Diarrhoea
• Being bloated most days
• Discomfort in the tummy area
• Constipation
• Nausea/feeling sick
• Blood in your poo

If you have any of these for three weeks or more, tell your doctor. If you notice any other unusual changes, such as a lump in the tummy area,
post-menopausal bleeding or unexplained weight loss, again, your doctor will want to know. These can also be signs of cancer.

The chances are it’s nothing serious, but any of these things could be a sign of something that needs treatment. If it is cancer, finding it early
makes it more treatable.

Don’t ignore the warning signs. If you’ve been suffering from tummy troubles such as diarrhoea, bloating, discomfort or anything else that just doesn’t feel right for three weeks or more, it could be a sign of cancer. Finding it early makes it more treatable. Tell your doctor.
