7. Sudden weight loss
Weight becomes a problem for most people around the time they turn 25. You suddenly start to feel fat, clothes don’t fit, cheeks fill up – and an endless battle between your heart and mind begins to lose weight.
People who do successfully lose weight is due to exercising and diet control. However if you start losing weight – and in great quantities – for no reason at all, you are in trouble! Cancer patients often lose few KGs in a matter of days. More than 27% people diagnosed with kidney cancer report weight loss.
Why does weight loss occur? – You don’t feel like eating, the cancer is spreading to other organs and your immune system is slowly dying. Your muscles and tissues are degenerating causing you to lose weight.
