Never ignore a symptom, which is unusual, unexplained or occurs for the first time in life

Indigestion, persistent cough, shortness of breath, constipation, fever, headache, feeling tired all the time are some common symptoms that many of us experience, but their significance is often undermined in the rush of the day to day life. We often ignore symptoms or minimize their significance and delay going to the doctor. But, this is how our body tries to tell us that all is not well and it's time to see a doctor. These symptoms are important as they may be due to a disease. At times, many of these common symptoms may signal a serious disease condition.
 Messages describing the 'warning signs' of many diseases like cancer, heart attack, stroke etc. are often displayed in public places and even in clinics and hospitals for patients to read.

  • Change in bowel or bladder habits.
  • A sore that does not heal.
  • Unusual bleeding or discharge.
