Cancer Warning Signals Act As Radar For Body If every American knew and acted promptly on Cancer's Warning signals thousands of lives could be saved and untold suffering prevented each year from cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. Years of experience have de veloped evidence that these warn lng signals are part of the body's early warning system a radar that signals the presence of disease. If any signal appears, and persists for more than two weeks, it should be brought to the attention of a doctor even If there Is no pain. He can determine what it means. Chances are It Is not cancer. Or, it may be a pre cancerous condition which can be easily removed and cancer prevented. However, if the signal should be a symptom of cancer, the patient has a much better chance of survival and cure if he heeds the Warning Signal than if he Ignores it. This Is based on the fact that cancer Is among the most cur. able of the major killing diseases If it Is found early, and treated promptly and proper, ly. : However, the patient's re sponslblllty for his own health does not end with the Warning Signals. Cancer is often a "silent disease" and does not always give a warning of its presence. Thus, a patient has a .better chance of avoiding the- disease by not only knowing the Warning Signals, but by having an annual physical checkup. Through such checkups, many cancers can be found in their early stages even If the patient has noticed no symptoms. For A Look Backward ALL IN .
