Liver cancer is known as the “silent killer” is really a very image, because it has no obvious characteristics in the early stage of its appearance, which makes it impossible to find. When there are obvious symptoms, it is often powerless, so the name “silent killer” is really too appropriate.
However, liver cancer is not really without warning. When there is traction pain in the right shoulder, be careful. No, there is a Mr. Tang, who was found to have liver cancer and was in advanced stage. According to his description, there was no other special feeling in the body before. Only one year ago, I felt pain in my right shoulder. At first, I didn’t care about it. I just thought it was common rheumatism. I didn’t care after plastering several times.
after a long period of massage, acupuncture and other treatment, he still didn’t get better. He had no choice but to go to the hospital for examination. As a result, he couldn’t believe it. In any case, he didn’t think it was advanced liver cancer. It’s hard for Mr. Tang to accept that he just has shoulder pain. How can he be in advanced stage of liver cancer?
in fact, I believe it’s not only Mr. Tang, but also many people can’t understand how shoulder pain is related to liver cancer? There’s no connection between the shoulder and the liver, which doesn’t make sense. As a matter of fact, because the liver has no pain nerve, the body will not have obvious changes when suffering from liver cancer, and the liver is on the upper right side of the abdomen. With the spread of cancer cells, it will press the diaphragm above the liver, resulting in drag pain.
However, it does not mean that shoulder pain is the manifestation of liver cancer. Many diseases can lead to shoulder pain, such as scapulohumeral periarthritis, rheumatism, gout and other diseases may lead to shoulder pain. If all these causes are eliminated and still can not be solved, we should consider checking the liver. Shoulder pain caused by liver cancer is often accompanied by the following symptoms.
first of all, halitosis. Generally speaking, as long as you brush your teeth on time every day, you will not have halitosis. If you have halitosis for a long time, and it can not be improved, you should be careful whether there is a problem with the liver after eliminating the problems of mouth, intestines and stomach. If the liver has pathological changes, its metabolic function will be affected. If the toxic gases in the blood are not metabolized, they will accumulate in the body and be eliminated by the mouth and nose, thus forming halitosis.
the second is frequent diarrhea. Diarrhea is usually caused by eating bad food, but this situation will be alleviated quickly. If long-term diarrhea continues and cannot be improved, after excluding gastrointestinal problems, it is necessary to doubt whether it is caused by liver problems. When the liver has problems, the secretion of bile will be affected, and the food in the intestines and stomach can not be decomposed and digested in time. Long term accumulation in the body will lead to gastrointestinal discomfort and diarrhea.
Finally, spider nevus appears in the body. According to the name, we can guess that it is a kind of red spot like spider. If this kind of spot appears in a large area, and even has the trend of diffusion, we must be careful. It is mostly caused by liver problems, and the main reason is the expansion of capillaries caused by the rise of estrogen in the body.
in general, if there is traction pain in the right shoulder, accompanied by the above symptoms, it is best to go to the hospital for examination in time, so as not to delay the illness. Focus
