Worried about cancer

I read on somewhere that extreme fatigue can be the sign and symptom of cancer. In these 3 months, i constantly feel lethargic despite i have get enough of sleep. Can this possibly be a sign of cancer?

Hi Claire,

Sorry to know that you are feeling lethargic for the last 3 months.

Some of the signs of cancer related fatigue – you feel tired and it does not
get better, it keeps coming back or it becomes severe.
You feel tired and it’s not related to any activity.
You have no energy.
You will always experience ‘feeling weak'.

However, lethargy can be a depressing symptom and it can affect your life.
Please see a doctor ASAP for a thorough investigation.

All the best and wishing you health and a speedy recovery.
