1. Intestinal changes
Having occasional bowel problems is normal, but can sometimes indicate a possible colon or rectal cancer, which is called joint colorectal cancer. One can develop anywhere in the colon, while the other affects exclusively the rectum, which connects the colon to the anus. Frequent diarrhea and constipation can cause cancer, particularly if all these changes occur suddenly. In addition, they are often accompanied by frequent gas and abdominal pain. A defecation of appearance or strange size could be a suspect.
2. Rectal bleeding
Rectal bleeding may be an early sign of rectal cancer; it should be especially worrisome if the bleeding persists or if the sufferer suffers from iron deficiency (anemia) due to the loss of blood. You may also notice traces of blood in the stool. Although there are other more common causes for bleeding in this area, such as hemorrhoids, you should not try to diagnose yourself if you are having these symptoms. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. From the age of 50, regular colon cancer screenings are advised.

3. Urinary changes
Incontinence, as well as other urinary changes, may develop as the person ages over the years. However, some symptoms may indicate that it is prostate cancer, which is very common among men 60 years of age or older. The most obvious ailments or symptoms in this type of disease are the inability to fully tolerate urination or even incontinence; meaning the inability to urinate despite the desire to do so; delayed urination, and having to make a great effort during urination.
4. Blood in the urine
If the person observes that when urinating, it becomes a reddish color, it is something that should not be ignored at all, since it is a very common symptom of bladder cancer. This type of cancer is more popular among current and former smokers than in people who have never smoked. On the other hand, prostatitis, prostate cancer, and urinary tract infections can also cause the affected person to discharge some blood when urinating. Also, prostate cancer causes the blood to remains in the seminal fluid.

5. Persistent back pain
Back pain is a common cause of injury, but only a few men realize that it can actually become related to cancer. Symptoms of cancer may not appear until it has spread to other parts of the body, such as the bones of the spine. For example, prostate cancer is especially prone to spread to the bones and can cause such symptoms in the hip area and lower back. Unlike the occasional muscular pains, the pains on the bones cause sensitivity and discomfort in that area.
6. Strange and unusual cough
One thing must be left clear and it's that cough is not something exclusive to smokers or people suffering from colds and allergies. In fact, a persistent cough may be a clear early sign of lung cancer. You should look closely at the other related symptoms, such as a stuffy nose or a fever because if you do not have them, then the cough you're having is probably not due to a virus or an infection. Coughing accompanied by bloody mucus is also associated with lung cancer in men.

7. Bumps in the testicles
It is true that testicular cancers in men are somewhat less common than those of prostate, lung, or colon. However, the initial symptoms that may occur should not be underestimated, as some bumps on the testicles may indicate possible testicular cancer. Doctors usually find these lumps during medical check-ups, but to make sure they are detected well in advance, you should see your doctor once a month.
8. Bumps on the breasts
Breast cancer is not exclusive to women, as men also need to pay attention and check from time to time any suspicious lumps that come out in the chest area. This is the first detectable symptoms of male breast cancer. Call your doctor right away to have a checkup if you have detected something unusual. Genes may play a key role in this type of cancer, but it can also occur due to exposure to radiation or high levels of estrogen. These lumps are mostly common in men 60 years of age or older.
