Everything in your body works to keep it healthy and functioning. If you notice a sudden change in your body, it may be because your body is trying to tell you something. Changes in your body can be an indication that something is wrong with your health. They can act as warning signs, so you should seek treatment as soon as you can. Here are 8 signs in your body that can indicate a health condition that you should not ignore:
8. Yellow eyes
Your eye whites should always be white- anything else is a sign of some kind of underlying health issue. Red eyes can be caused by insomnia, a bad cold or some kind of eye infection. Red eyes can also mean that you have conjunctivitis. However, if your eye whites are yellow it can be a sign of jaundice, liver or gallbladder problems. If your eyes have turned yellow and you are feeling unwell, it is best to go to a doctor for advice.
7. Birthmarks and moles
Birthmarks, moles and warts are normal and most of the time they are harmless or benign. However, if you develop a mole or wart in an area that recently exposed to the sun, it may a symptom of a melanoma. Also, if a birthmark or mole suddenly changes colour can be another indication of cancer. Senile and actinic keratosis are triggered by sun and UV rays can be considered as precancerous skin changes.
6. Swollen neck
If your neck swells suddenly, go see a doctor immediately. If the front of your neck is swollen, it may be an indication of a thyroid problem. If you have a high fever and swollen lymph nodes, you have mononucleosis. A swollen neck may also be a sign of infected or cancerous lymph nodes. While some swellings are harmless or a sign of a minor infection, others can be a reason for concern.
