Cancer remains one of the deadliest diseases in the world, with 14 million new cases and 8.2 million deaths recorded in 2012, World Health Organisation statistics show.
According to cancer.org, cancer can start anywhere in the body.
It starts when cells grow out of control and crowd out normal cells. This makes it hard for the body to work the way it should.
It is important to note that cancer affects both men and women.
“One of the best ways to fight the disease is to catch it in the early stages, when it's more treatable," says WebMD's Linda Rath.
“The problem is that the warning signs for many kinds of cancer can seem pretty mild.”
Below are 10 cancer symptoms men should not ignore:
1. Finding it difficult to urinate
2. Changes in testicles
3. Blood in urine, semen or stool
4. Weight loss without trying
5. Bone pain
6. Erectile dysfunction
7. Skin changes
8. Breast changes
9. Belly pain and depression
10. Mouth changes
