1 White Patches Inside Your Mouth
Smokers and tobacco users should be especially wary of this one: sores inside the mouth or on the tongue that don't go away can be a sign of leukoplakia, which leads to mouth cancer. Bring these to your doctor's attention if you catch them.

2 Changes on Your Skin
If you notice any changes on a wart or mole on your body, or any other changes on your skin, this could be a sign of melanoma, also known as skin cancer. See a doctor or dermatologist right away, melanoma can be treated easily if it's detected early.

4 Changes in Bowel Functions

If you notice any other major changes in the way your body functions or feels, you should see a doctor, especially if the changes persist or get worse. It may not be cancer, but any major change in your body is worthy of concern.
