Doctors can tell cancer by the way you eat

Doctors have discovered a way to recognize cancer by looking at how you eat, say researchers from the Roy Castle Foundation.

Dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing and passing food through the throat, may be one of the hallmarks of lung cancer, they said. The researchers noted that pain and burning can also occur with dysphagia. Doctors explained that lung cancer is often diagnosed only at advanced stages, when the growth of the tumor begins to cause inconvenience to the patient.

Earlier, doctors spoke about the first signs of oral cancer. Experts believe that the first symptoms of cancer in this part of the body may be red and white spots, as well as bumps on the tongue, inner cheeks and lips. In addition, it is worth paying close attention to swelling in the palate and swelling on the head and neck.
