Signs that cancer is getting worse

If you have cancer, the condition will slowly get worse over time without proper treatment. This is why medical professionals need to make a proper diagnosis as soon as possible and get you started on a treatment plan that can give you the best chance of survival. That does not guarantee recovery -- cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases in the world -- but it is still the type of care you deserve.

So, how do you know if the cancer is getting worse? Some potential signs could include:

  • Increased difficulty breathing
  • Pain that grows worse from week to week or month to month
  • The onset of extreme fatigue that makes it impossible for you to live the way that you once did
  • Extreme physical changes, such as weight loss that you cannot stop no matter what you try
  • Trouble doing simple physical tasks, such as getting out of bed on your own

Cancer can really sap your energy and your strength. You may sleep far more than you ever have before and you may often take naps during the day. You may never feel up to any type of activity; it may even be hard to find the energy to spend time with your loved ones. When you add in things like trouble breathing and increased pain, it becomes very clear that something is wrong.

If you have been seeing these signs, you may start to question the care that you received. Make sure you are well aware of the legal rights you have after a doctor's error.
