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
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
