Every disease sooner or later manifests its symptoms and doctors manage to recognize it. Of course, early diagnosis is the best thing, as it gives a chance for treatment to begin and a person to recover
However, some diseases have not yet been studied in detail or do not have clearly expressed symptoms. Such is the case with cancer. Scientists from all over the world are trying to find symptoms for early diagnosis of this insidious disease.
Success in this direction has been found by doctors from the United Kingdom. According to their latest research, the eyes can warn of lung cancer.
It is about a certain condition of the eyes. The presence of an oncological disease can be signaled by drooping of the eyelid, reduction in the size of the pupil or double vision.
The first two symptoms appear only on one side of the face. They are associated with non-small cell lung cancer.
It usually starts in the bronchi and then spreads to other parts of the body, affecting the sympathetic nervous system.
Double vision, according to doctors, can indicate metastatic lung cancer. In this case, the cancer cells break away from the tumor and travel to other parts of the body through the blood or lymphatic system.
In addition to vision problems, the disease causes speech difficulties, seizures and headaches.
