Cancer comes in many forms and there are many signs of symptoms of each various iteration of the disease. Dr. Anand, who will appear on this evening’s episode of Embarrassing Bodies some signs readers may not be aware of.

Dr. Anand Patel said: “The advice below is general guidance and shouldn’t be taken as complete medical advice.

“If you have a symptom or issue that persists or you’re worried about, it’s always best to consult your GP as soon as you’re able to and get the medical advice tailored to your issue.’

So, when could something embarrassing on the body be a sign of something serious like cancer? What examples are there of this and when should people act?

Dr. Anand said: “Unfortunately that’s a really big question!

“There are many symptoms we tend to worry about but some include:

  • unexpected weight loss
  • a change in bowel habit like new and persistent diarrhoea
  • night sweats
  • coughing up blood
  • a new lump

“If you have a persistent new symptom that you’re concerned about, have it checked out by your GP.”
