Is It Possible To Have Cancer Without Suffering Weight Loss?

Postby Adalwolf » Fri Sep 29, 2017 5:49 am

In the early stages of cancer does one remain a normal weight? Does the weight loss come later when the cancer is in the advanced stages?

i personally don't think eating "breakfast" is important for weight loss. Eating a piece of fruit or a small salad could be a breakfast, or even drinking water with a banana. in my opinion, weight loss is about eating the right whole foods coupled with a decent amount of physical activitiy such as walking or something more strenuous.

I've lost 5 kilos in my first week. It's my 10th day and I have included salad with some protein (eg. egg/ lean chicken) as you suggested. After 4 years of trying, the fat is finally coming off. It truly feels like magic!

Get started today!

In general weigh loss does not occur until it is advanced, but you have to realize you are asking a question about 200 different diseases so there are going to be several exceptions.

I agree with "Denisedd" - but I think it's safe to say that the early stages of every malignancy should not be associated with weight loss.
So you are correct in your assertion that "in the EARLY stages of cancer one does remain at normal weight."

This brings up a very good point about the so called "Seven Warning Signs of Cancer." http://www.healingdaily.com/conditions/7...

Some of these are signs of fairly advanced disease.

"Change in bowel or bladder habits" You want to find colorectal cancer with screening long BEFORE these symptoms.

"Nagging cough or hoarseness" might indicate laryngeal or lung cancers, but these are advanced signs.
Unfortunately screening does not help us with these malignancies.
The best solution for these is to not smoke cigarettes.
Cigarettes cause the vast majority of these, so most could be prevented.
The smoking related cancers are the most difficult to treat successfully, so people should not think they can smoke and be cured if they are the ones to develop smoking related cancers.


"Difficulty in swallowing" might indicate esophageal cancer, but this sign shows up also at a late stage of the disease.
Esophageal cancers are also smoking related and are very difficult to treat successfully.

In most types of cancer, it is far better to find them long before they cause weight loss or any symptoms at all.


That is one reason pancreatic cancer patients do so poorly.
There is no good way to find them early

This is a hard question to answer for me.
I guess my sister's cancer was already pretty advanced when they found it, and she didn't have any weight loss, at least not noticeable.
She lived for 17 months after her cancer was diagnosed, and the last months she was retaining fluid in her legs.
Other than that, she looked good and had a remarkable, upbeat attitude.
She didn't appear noticeably thin until the last couple months. She fought a brave fight and I thought she would be able to beat it, even against the odds.
She passed on April 23, 2008.
Love you, Isis! (that's her nickname)
