3. Weight Loss
Losing weight is one of the most difficult things to do, especially for women. If you were struggling to lose weight for a while and all of a sudden you notice the pounds starting to drop then you may want to sit up and take notes. Of course, weight-loss can be linked to a number of conditions that can range from being as minor as stress to as major as HIV. However, in the middle of this spectrum, there is lung cancer which has been known to help people drop a couple of pounds.
The cause of the weight-loss in cancer patients is linked to a few reasons. One is that cancer usually attacks the cells within the body, causing them to deteriorate and fail to function accordingly. Another more common reason is associated with the reality that cancer often spreads growths and tumors throughout the body which can cause proteins to improperly behave.
