UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The doctor Alexander Myasnikov on the program “About the most important” on the channel “Russia 1” talked about the symptoms that can signal the development of cancer.
According to him, risk factors can be detected directly on the human body, without doing special tests for this. Therefore, at the appointment, the doctor should always carefully examine the patient.
“Studies say that if after examining the patient and talking to him you don’t have a diagnostic concept, then most likely, no tests and computed tomography scans will help you 90 percent,” Myasnikov explained.
Dry skin, itching and black acanthosis, dark age spots, in the armpits and under the chest may be symptoms of oncology, in particular stomach cancer. In addition, this may indicate the presence of diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism and pituitary diseases in the patient.
Changes in the nail plate also often indicate the development of malignant tumors.
“You can see melanoma on the nails. We see metastasis from melanoma and don’t understand where. Sometimes it’s just a blue nail. They think we got nipped,” the doctor noted.
Another sign of cancer is poor wound healing. Papillomas on the human body can also signal the presence in the body of oncogenic viruses that provoke the development of tumors, often in the cervix.
In turn, a sign of ovarian cancer can be hirsutism – excessive facial hair growth in women.
