Cancer is so ruthless that its symptoms can fake a person, even a doctor, into thinking that its symptoms are being caused by a harmless condition–especially when the symptoms come on very small and gradually.
Many symptoms of cancer are also symptoms of many benign conditions.
And many symptoms of a malignancy are also signs of other conditions that are life-threatening.
