5. Weakness and Fatigue
All types of cancer cause fatigue and weakness. That is the main symptoms of a more severe health problem. Do not be surprised to find out that cancer interferes with the metabolism. It affects energy stores as well. It is natural that you feel exhausted since your body is trying to do its best to fight cancer and damaged cells. Fatigue is not equal to tiredness. Patients feel fatigue even after a night’s rest and keep on feeling tired throughout the day. Most patients quit doing what they once enjoyed doing simply because they lack energy to accomplish their usual tasks and routine. Fatigue includes both the physical and mental aspect – the patient is weak not only physically, he might also find it hard to concentrate.
All the symptoms described above do not always mean that you have cancer. Never jump to conclusion. If you are in doubt, we recommend you should see a doctor and discuss the issues that worry you most. Only after you go through some certain medical tests and examinations will you and your doctor know whether you are suffering from cancer or any other disease.
