Cancer is a group of diseases that causes abnormal growth of cells. These atypical cells get into or spread around different body parts. It can be very hard to diagnose cancer as it usually shows no symptoms at early stages. If detected early, there's a good chance of recovery.

- prostate cancer;
- bladder cancer;

- ovarian cancer;
- breast cancer;
- lung cancer.
There are some signs and symptoms that possibly can indicate this serious disease. While they aren't always definite signs of this particular illness, they still mean you need to consult a doctor! Here are 16 red flags to pay attention to.
