Cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases of our age. It is necessary to adopt a healthy life in order to protect the effects of cancer, which can cause very dangerous situations. It is very important to detect cancer early and start the right treatment. Liver cancer is known for not causing noticeable symptoms in its early stages. However, there are three symptoms of liver cancer that anyone who develops in the abdomen should be aware of.
LIVER CANCER SYMPTOMS
According to Cancer Research UK, there are three symptoms of liver cancer that can appear in the abdomen (stomach).
- having a bloated stomach
- pain in the abdomen
- lump on the right side of the abdomen
Cancer Research UK explained why liver cancer can affect the abdomen and listed two potential causes of swelling. “This could be because: The liver is also enlarged due to the growing cancer, causing swelling on the right side of your abdomen;
Cancer (or cirrhosis) increases pressure in the liver, causing blood to pool in the veins (veins). This forces fluid from the veins into the abdomen (acid).”
ATTENTION TO THESE SYMPTOMS SEEN DURING THE MEAL
“The increased pressure in the veins can cause them to swell, which can be seen below the surface of the abdomen. Ascites can also develop when the liver doesn’t make enough blood protein (albumin).
“A swollen (enlarged) liver can cause pain in your right shoulder. This is because the enlarged liver stimulates the nerves that connect to the nerves in the shoulder. This is called referred pain.”
Other symptoms of liver cancer may include:
- weight loss
- Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
- feeling sick
- Loss of appetite or feeling full after eating a small amount of food
- pain in right shoulder
