- Unexplained weight loss,
- Concerns over altered bowel habit, especially if associated with blood,
- New lumps in the abdomen and abdominal pain,
- Coughs for more than 4 weeks,
- Coughing up blood,
- Swallowing problems especially if progressive,
- Blood in urine,
- Breast lumps,
- Post-menopausal bleeding,
- Any changes to moles that you are concerned about,
- Progressive headache especially if associated with other signs and symptoms,
- Jaundice (yellowing of skin),
- Unexplained bruising,
- Testicular lumps.
