5 Red Flags for Common Health Problems in Women


3.    General Body Fatigue

Though this sign easily gets ignored by lots of women due to their busy schedules, it could be a red flag to some severe problems within you.

Anaemia is the first red flag that will cause severe fatigue. Anaemia is a condition in which your body is experiencing lower blood levels, and as a result, the body is not well nourished with vital nutrients and oxygen.

Repeated waking up at night causing you to feel tired in the morning could be signs of overweight and changes in the period.

4.    Breast Lumps

Women are always advised to continually check the condition of their breasts to identify any abnormal lumps. Painful lumps and soft lipoma can be contained when detected early.

However, breast lumps become a health concern when it becomes a symptom of cancer of the breast. When you start experiencing pain in your lump, it is a clear sign the disease is advanced, and it tends to affect the surrounding areas of your breast.

5.    Skin Change

Skin change is inevitable especially with old age, puberty, menopause, and brown patches. Though sometimes it could be a reaction due to cosmetic products, at times it is a health red flag.

Skin darkening around your nail brittles could be a sign you are experiencing a deficiency in calcium. An indoor lifestyle and strict adherence to a vegetarian diet could be the reason of your skin darkening, or a sign of insufficient Vitamin D.

Post-menopause problems, multiple pregnancies, and excessive breastfeeding could all be the reason behind the skin darkening around your nails.

The formation of lots of moles or a considerable change in the existing moles can be a clear sign of malignant melanoma or aggressive cancer in your body.

Social factors and changes of hormones in the body of a woman can lead to skin changes.

Besides, it could be a sign of skin disorders and paying attention to precise skin changes can be the difference between life and death.
