Breathing problems, such as shortness of breath, are not normal. If you can’t walk far without feeling winded, you need to be checked out by a doctor. Lung damage can be done by cancer. Breast cancer and bowel cancer often spread to the lungs.
Unexplained night sweats are sometimes symptoms of cancer that are overlooked. It seems harmless enough to wake up sweaty, but it could be your body’s way of warning you that cancer is growing. Don’t overlook night sweats unless you are going through menopause. If you don’t have a broken air conditioner to cause the sweating at night, go directly to the doctor!
