    CANCER, the word, many young women will rather not think about; dismissing it as a problem of older women. The religious ones will out rightly say “God Forbid” or “It’s not my portion” if the word was ever mentioned to them.

    Despite the denial, the rate of breast cancer in younger patients is on the increase. Prof. Clement Adebamowo, the Director, Society of Oncology and Cancer Research of Nigeria, SOCRON, once said “women of ages 25-64 are mostly at risk of cancer of the breast and cervical cancers. In a chat with Dr. Deji Adeyemi of All Souls Infirmary, Agege, he pointed out some of the warning signs women often overlook.

    They are as follows:

    Coughing: One of the signs of lung cancer Dr. Adeyemi says is persistent coughing lasting well over three or four weeks. This type of cough should not be ignored.

    Shortness of Breath/Difficulty breathing:If you ever find yourself struggling to catch your breath, this may be an indication of lung cancer, although not all cases of breathing difficulties are lung cancer.

    Changes in nails: Whoever knew that different types of cancer can be detected from the fingernails but as studies have shown, a brown or black streak or dot under the nail can indicate skin cancer, while enlargement of the ends of the fingers with nails that curve down over the tips can be a sign of lung cancer. Pale or white nails are also sometimes a sign of liver cancer.

    Heavy/painful periods or bleeding between periods: This could be a sign of endometrial or uterine cancer. If you ever experience this, it is important that you quickly ask for a transvaginal ultrasound.

    Orange Breasts: Many women know their breast and do regular self-examinations, but many are still not informed
