British cancer researchers have come up with a list of symptoms that are important warning signs of cancer.

The findings published in the British Journal of General Practice, include: difficulty in swallowing, rectal bleeding, blood in urine, breast lumps, coughing  up blood, and anemic iron deficiency.

The cancers which might correlate with these symptoms include: esophageal cancer, colon cancer, urological cancers, breast cancer, lung cancer and colo-rectal cancer.

Their consensus is that these warning signs should give rise to a doctor's visit which in turn may lead to earlier diagnosis of common cancers at an earlier stage, thus reducing cancer deaths.

Other common indicators of possible cancer include sudden loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, and post-menopausal bleeding in women.
