Cancer symptoms: Five 'unexpected' signs of cancer you may be ignoring

Difficulty swallowing

Trouble swallowing – with, or without an associated pain – may be caused by oesophageal cancer.

An oesophageal cancer can make the passage in your oesophagus smaller over time, which can lead to a sensation of choking when eating.

Hoarseness

AARP said: “If hoarseness in your voice doesn’t go away after two weeks, it can be cause for concern — especially if you have not had a cold.

“Hoarseness can be a sign of laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancers, according to the American Cancer Society, because the vocal chords are affected by the cancer. Other signs include a sore throat and constant coughing.”
