I thought you might like to read a little bit about my liver cancer symptoms that I experienced prior to being diagnosed with liver cancer and also my medical history across the years, that ties in quite heavily with my recent liver cancer diagnosis.
Now upon reflection and as I explained on my page about my colon cancer symptoms, I think there is a dreadful reality about why people often miss the critical signs that something is going terribly wrong inside their bodies.
In my personal situation, I have suffered from a multitude of health problems and (unknowingly) cancer related symptoms over the years, particularly in relation to my stomach, bowel and vital organs region.
Symptoms associated with liver cancer, like stomach aches, bloating, mild pain and discomfort around that area, I have often experienced daily and accepted these things as a consequence of my years gone by. In the past (or at least I thought) these symptoms have not been associated with cancer, or liver cancer more precisely. But this time, it seems to be a serious miscalculation on my behalf.
Maybe I should never have been so casual in accepting these symptoms as being a normal consequence of my life gone by. If your body is telling you something, you should act on that immediately and seek further investigation from your doctor.
In the bustling years of my late 20’s, I was hospitalised with chronic stomach ulceration. I’m not proud to say, but this problem was a direct result of extreme alcohol abuse from when I was in my early teens.
At the time, the doctors and specialists who were taking care of me wanted to remove my stomach entirely and suggested that if left unattended, I may not live another 6-12 months.
I didn’t take the doctors advise at that time, but it led me to make big changes in my life.
Something very special happened around that time. I’ll discuss this more on my testimonies page. But in short, I accepted God into my life, I removed alcohol from my body and I drastically changed my diet, in line with how the Bible told me to eat.
Within months, my stomach had totally repaired itself, free and clear from any visible damage. My doctors actually performed their follow up tests twice, because they believed that my scans and results had been mixed up with another patient somehow along the way.
Needless to say, I do believe in the power of God to heal the sick and also the human body’s natural ability to heal itself from cancer and disease, if the process is managed correctly.
What are the most common liver cancer symptoms?
The most common symptoms of liver cancer are:
- A feeling of discomfort on the upper right side of the abdomen
- A hard lump on the right side of the abdomen, below the rib cage
- Pain in the upper back, around the right shoulder blade
- Unexplained weight loss
- Yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes – this is called jaundice
- Unusual tiredness
- Loss of appetite and/or nausea.
There are a number of conditions that may cause these symptoms, not just liver cancer. If any of these symptoms are experienced, it is important that they are discussed with a doctor.
