However, some warnings can have a huge impact. Consider that one out of two men and one out of three women will get cancer in their lifetimes in the United States. As a result, in perhaps my most important blog thus far, I must share the seven warning signs of cancer as listed by the American Cancer Society. The seven warning signs can be described by the acronym CAUTION. They are:
Change in bowel or bladder habits
A sore that will not heal
Unusual discharge or bleeding
Thickening or lump in the breast, testicles or elsewhere
Indigestion or difficulty swallowing
Obvious change in a wart or mole
Nagging cough or hoarseness
A person who experiences any of these signs or symptoms should visit a healthcare provider. Although, these signs may be caused by other entities, it is safest to make sure cancer is not the culprit.
The flashing headlights I saw this morning may have saved someone the cost of a speeding ticket. These warning signs of cancer, more importantly, may save someone's life.
I mention how I missed one of these warning signs, i.e. unusual discharge or bleeding, in my first book, "A Place I Didn't Want To Go: My Victory Over Cancer". I describe the heartache of going through cancer treatment but yet, my victory through God's grace. Check it out on Amazon at:
I also talk about the positive aspects of illness in my second book, "Glorified Sickness: Honoring God Through Illness", which became available in February 2014. It can be accessed at:
