There are a lot of people who don’t care about their minor physical problems, often because of these negligence, which delays the best time to treat the disease. That’s why many cancer discoveries are in the middle and late stages. So, when the body has the following conditions, do not ignore, these are early signs of cancer.
Cystic hyperplasia of breast
Statistics show that more than 95% of women will have hyperplasia of the breast. Generally speaking, hyperplasia of the breast will not become breast cancer, but if hyperplasia of the breast is serious and accompanied by cysts, we should be alert.
At present, it is generally accepted that cystic hyperplasia of breast belongs to precancerous lesions. According to statistics, about 20% of patients with adenomatous hyperplasia and long-term non healing are likely to have malignant transformation, while women with cystic hyperplasia are four times more likely to have breast cancer than healthy people.
Therefore, patients with cystic hyperplasia of the breast must be regularly checked for early detection and treatment.
Thyroid nodule is a mass in thyroid gland. Its etiology is related to sex, age, history of neck radiation exposure and other factors. In general, thyroid nodules are less than 10% malignant, but treatment should not be ignored.
In addition, the majority of multiple thyroid nodules are benign, while the probability of a single thyroid nodule being malignant is higher. Therefore, if a single thyroid nodule is found, it should be treated in time.
Gastrointestinal polyp is a kind of mucosal protuberant lesion caused by chronic inflammation of the mucosa in the gastrointestinal tract, which mainly includes inflammatory polyp, adenomatous polyp and proliferative polyp.
In fact, many gastrointestinal cancers develop from polyps, and the larger the polyp, the more likely it is to become cancerous. According to a survey, patients with polyps are 3-5 times more likely to have colon cancer than the general population. Therefore, if found to have gastrointestinal polyps, must be treated in time, do not take it lightly.
Chronic ulcer disease
Oral ulcer and gastric ulcer are very common “minor diseases”. Many people often don’t take them seriously, especially oral ulcer. They may not take any medicine. But we should pay attention to that if chronic ulcer exists for a long time, it is possible to have canceration.
If the same oral ulcer is not good for a long time (more than 1 month), it may be related to cancer, and if the gastric ulcer is not treated in time, repeated attacks, the possibility of canceration is also high. Therefore, we do not think ulcer is a minor disease, we must treat it in time.
Although hepatitis may not develop into liver cancer, it is one of the main causes of liver cancer. Therefore, hepatitis patients must be actively treated. Experts say that the early antiviral treatment of chronic hepatitis is very important to prevent liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.
If there are hepatitis patients in the family, we should do a good job in hepatitis prevention, including prevention of mother to child transmission and blood transmission, as well as vaccination.
Prevention of cancer, in addition to timely treatment of illness, should also pay attention to regular physical examination, no matter what disease, early detection and early treatment are the most effective means of prevention and treatment.
