Il cancer it occurs when some cells in our body reproduce abnormally. This disease is still a leading cause of death in the world and, in some cases, it can even be difficult to diagnose as the signs and symptoms can vary enormously. According to the research, however, one of the symptoms to watch out for is linked to food and the sense of hunger.
There are many different types of cancer; for example, there is blood cancer which affects blood cells, while all the others affect organs and tissues. Among the most common we point out: ovarian cancer, To lungs, the stomach and pancreas. According to theAmerican Cancer Society, the food-related symptom, which could be a warning sign, is the loss of appetite. (Read also: Lung cancer: causes of disease in non-smokers discovered.

In fact, depending on the location of the tumor, this can affect our diet; if it is found in or around the gastrointestinal tract, it can cause trouble swallowing or making you feel full even without eating. Some tumors can also release hormones specific ones that affect the way your body recognizes the sense of hunger; this mechanism can make you feel full even when you are not.
Other causes of loss of appetite are related to the fact that cancer is often linked to pain, stress, depression, dehydration and nausea; all of these factors can affect appetite. But that's not all, as some specific cancers, including ovarian, lung, stomach and pancreatic cancers, have loss of appetite among their symptoms. For example, ovarian cancer not only makes you lose your sense of hunger, it also quickly induces a sense of fullness and swelling.
This symptom can cause a sudden weight loss which, in turn, can lead to a feeling of tiredness and weakness, which affects normal daily activities and also the way the body responds to the treatment for the disease.
What could help in case of loss of appetite? Snack more throughout the day, instead of three large meals, and avoid drinking with meals. Plus, cooking your favorite dishes or creating a pleasant atmosphere could also boost your appetite and help make you feel stronger.
