Obviously a sore throat is usually due to a sinus infection, and if you have jaw pain, it could be dental-related. However, if you experience the two symptoms in conjunction, that is a worrisome sign you might be having a heart attack.
If you have chest pain that spreads immediately to your jaw and throat, call 911. Your jaw pain may also be attributed to jaw cancer, due to a tumor causing pain in your jaw area. See a medical professional to rule out this pain as a symptom of jaw cancer.
Fatigue is a tricky symptom since it can be a signifier of many different diseases, from lyme disease or multiple sclerosis to leukemia. If you have sudden, debilitating exhaustion, you could have stomach cancer, colon cancer or leukemia.
All three types of cancers can result in blood loss and tiredness. When resting doesn’t cure your fatigue, you need to see a specialist. The fatigue is a symptom of cancer because your body is busy fighting the invading cells, the process of which wears you out and reduces your energy.
#13 Genital Itchiness
If your genitals have a persistent itch, you might have a sexually transmitted infection. Several STIs cause itchiness and painful skin. Herpes symptoms typically develop within 2 to 20 days after contact with the virus, so if you have noticeable discomfort see a doctor.
Genital itching can also be a symptom of cancer of the vulva, and may be accompanied with pain. See your OB/GYN or physician to have this symptom checked out.
#12 Sudden Confusion
Difficulty concentrating or sudden-onset confusion are worrying symptoms. These changes could mean something is happening in the brain, like a stroke; they may also be brain cancer symptoms.
The same is true of a sudden and dramatic change in personality. If you experience sudden confusion or someone you know is acting very differently, immediately seek medical attention to rule out brain cancer as the cause.
#11 Rectal Bleeding
Rectal bleeding could be a sign of several different types of cancers, including cancer of the anus or colon. Colon cancer is usually more associated with men, but it is also the third leading cause of cancer in women.
If you experience red or dark blood in your stool, make an appointment with a physician because these are serious symptoms of colon cancer.
