OK, guys, let’s face it. You eat well most of the time, you work out as often as your schedule lets you, you work hard, you party hard but when it comes time to see a doctor…well, most guys are AWOL.

You can greatly reduce your odds of developing cancer, but the truth is that no one is 100 percent immune, especially if it runs in your family. The best way to beat cancer is to catch it early. You can kick this sucker out of your life if you find it early but to do that you need to pay attention to some early symptoms and warnings signs. Then, when you see those signs, go talk to the doc.

Keep reading and become familiar with the top 15 early warning signs of cancer that most men tend to ignore but you really shouldn’t.


1. Pain That Doesn’t Go Away

Although cancer in and of itself generally does not cause pain, once it spreads it tends to push, pull, or cause pain in other parts of the body. If you have pain in any part of the body that does not go away within 4 to 6 weeks, see your doctor.


2. Extreme Fatigue

Cancer tends to suck up a person’s energy, leaving you feeling tired all the time; tired right down to your bones! This is a different kind of feeling than how you feel after playing soccer with your kids all day or even after you have had a super hectic week at work.
