But what are the first signs of pregnancy you should really be on the lookout for? We break down the most common early pregnancy symptoms and what you can do to ease any ensuing discomfort. When Do Pregnancy Symptoms Start?
Why it's vital to know the causes and symptoms of urinary tract infections and how to treat and prevent them. Unrecognized and untreated urinary tract infections UTIs can quickly turn into more serious conditions. Among young and middle-aged adults, UTIs are more likely to strike women than men.
Some cancer treatments lower sex hormone levels in the body. In women, these hormones are oestrogen and progesterone. Low levels of sex hormones can sometimes cause urinary problems in women, including infections and incontinence.
Breast cancer may not cause any signs or symptoms in its early stages. Signs and symptoms often appear when the tumour grows large enough to be felt as a lump in the breast or when the cancer spreads to surrounding tissues and organs. Other health conditions can cause the same symptoms as breast cancer. The most common symptom of ductal carcinoma is a firm or hard lump that feels very different from the rest of the breast.
Abdominal pain is pain that originates between the chest and the pelvis. Abdominal pain can be cramp-like, achy, dull, or sharp. It is often called a stomachache.
Your breasts may be extra tender as early as a week or two after conception. This hormone surge causes breasts to retain more fluids and feel heavy, sore or more sensitive than normal PMS tenderness. When it comes to cramps, this pregnancy sign is actually triggered by implantation—when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall.
Abnormal Pap Smears - The pap smear checks for abnormal cells of the cervix. This allows for early treatment to protect against cancer of the cervix. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding - includes bleeding between periods, after intercourse, after menopause, or heavy or prolonged menstrual cycles. Sharpe will assess the cause and recommend appropriate treatment.
A large body of research has documented the prevalence and severity of menopausal symptoms, especially vasomotor symptoms, in breast cancer survivors and their impact on quality of life. Urinary symptoms as part of the constellation of menopausal symptoms, however, have received relatively little attention. Thus, less is known about the prevalence and severity of urinary symptoms in breast cancer survivors.
Burning or pain during urination may be felt at the opening of the urethra or, less often, over the bladder in the pelvis, the lower part of the abdomen just above the pubic bone. Burning or pain during urination is an extremely common symptom in women, but it can affect men and can occur at any age. See also Overview of Urinary Tract Symptoms.
