If an adult suddenly grows soft, baby hair on their cheeks where none existed before, this could be a sign of malignant cancer, particularly lung or colorectal cancer. These cancers produce hormones that stimulate the growth of hair, starting on the cheek and spreading to the ear and forehead. In its early stages, the cancer may not be detectable by tests for a few months to a few years.
Urinary bleeding could be associated with kidney cancer if the tumor presses on a blood vessel. If there is blood in the urine but no pain, this could indicate kidney cancer and not just an infection or kidney stone. But it is important to know the source of the bleeding.
Upon arising, measure the urine. If the first cup (200-300 ml) has blood, this means the problem is in the urethra. If the second or third cup has blood, the problem is most likely in the bladder. If all 3 cups have blood, then the problem is in the kidneys.
There are four symptoms to be aware of:
- Shortness of breath and sometimes no energy
