Not all of us are created equal… Remember how you’ve bruised more easily than your neighbor when you were kids? That’s called Mother Nature, and it has nothing to do with what we are about to discuss.

Bruises that appear out of nothing could signal leukemia. According to the Cleveland Clinic, most leukemia patients are always full of bruises, and some of them may even bleed from their noses and gums. See a doctor immediately if it happens to you too!

26. Difficulty swallowing

If you have a common cold, difficulty swallowing is pretty obvious to occur but if you’re perfectly fine, it could mean that something really serious is going on. According to The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, difficulty swallowing is a sign of esophageal cancer.

Seek medical attention if you experience difficulty swallowing for apparently no reason. Even if it’s just a little discomfort, don’t ignore this symptom.
