Scientists have named another non-obvious symptom of cancer

Scientists from the United States conducted a study, which revealed that such a non-obvious symptom as excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can signal the development of oncology, reports the Express edition.

According to researchers, sweating may indicate a number of cancers. In particular, about lymphoma, leukemia, bone and liver cancer, as well as mesothelioma. This symptom intensifies most often at night, experts say.

It is clarified that hyperhidrosis appears due to the fact that the emerging cancer begins to change hormonal levels. Thus, hot flashes occur in the body and, as a result, the process of sweating occurs.

At the same time, American researchers recalled that usually a person sweats when playing sports, when it is hot or under stress. However, hyperhidrosis appears due to infectious diseases, either after taking medications, or due to natural hormonal changes such as pregnancy, menopause, or puberty.

Earlier, the German dermatologist Yael Adler stated that harmless changes on the skin can be a sign of dangerous diseases. For example, redness and irritation can be caused by stomach or intestinal problems. “This is a warning symptom that can indicate metabolic disorders such as diabetes as well as cancer,” she said.

On December 30, specialists from Cancer Research UK named another unobvious symptom oncology. According to them, bumps or swollen areas in the armpit may indicate the presence of lung cancer.
