how do you know if you have cancer

Report as

Blood work, biopsies, other tests I'm unaware of, and a doctor tells you so. If you are afraid for yourself or someone else you should consult a doctor.

If you have a doubt you might have cancer, you should visit a doctor immediately, since the prognosis of most cancers depends on how fast you detect it and start treatment for it.
Remember cancer nodules are non painful, fixed (they will not move when palpated) and hard to the touch.
The big problem with cancer is that is doesn't hurt until is too late and the pain is not from the tumor itself but from the tissues the tumor is compressing.

I have to take exception to the theory of cancers not being painful. I had a friend that was told by her doctor that the painful lump in her breast couldn't be cancer because it was painful. it turned out to be a very aggressive form of breast cancer. I may be wrong but I'm under the impression that the medical community is moving away from telling patients that if it hurts it can't be cancer. thanks

how you know is by diagnosis from a doctor.if you have what you feel like may be symptoms of cancer you need to talk to your doctor.the symptoms aren't universally the same. they can vary from person to person and according to the kind of cancer.
please see the doctor asap.

See a doctor but if u have ever had only one red eye in an old pic then that is a possible early sign of abdominal cancer
