Scientists have named a symptom of cancer that occurs in 23% of patients

Four out of 10 cancers are preventable, doctors say.

Cancer remains the leading cause of death worldwide, killing millions of people every year. Scientists have identified the most common symptom of cancer that may indicate a disease before a diagnosis is made. We are talking about abdominal symptoms, Chronicle.info reports with reference to RBK-Ukraine.

Scientists have studied eight abdominal symptoms (abdominal pain, changes in the intestines, bloating, dyspepsia (disruption of the normal activity of the stomach) , rectal bleeding, dysphagia (swallowing disorder), reflux and nausea/vomiting) among 15,956 patients who were subsequently diagnosed with cancer.

At the end of the study, researchers observed abdominal symptoms in 23% of cancer patients that they were bothered even before doctors discovered the tumor.

& # 171; Abdominal symptoms are common in cancer patients, and the time to onset depends on the symptom & # 187; & # 8212; say the researchers.

How you can reduce your risk of cancer

It's not always clear what causes cancer, but there are proven risk factors. In fact, doctors estimate that four out of 10 cancers are preventable.

Overweight and obesity are the second leading causes of cancer, according to British scientists.

& # 171; Overweight does not mean that you will necessarily have cancer. But if you are overweight, you are more likely to get cancer than a normal weight & # 187; & # 8212; Doctors warn.
