A visit to the doctor is highly recommended when a person has difficulty swallowing (possibility of esophageal cancer), experiences digestive problems like painful heartburn, persistent loss of appetite, or bloating (possibility gastric cancer) or when she has a hoarse voice, persistent cough or shortness of breath (possibility of laryngeal cancer).
Finally, unexplained bleeding, mouth ulcers that do not heal, or unusual breast changes should also be closely monitored.
