18 Symptoms of Dangerous Health Conditions Hiding in Plain Sight 1

Night sweats

Night sweats can be caused by various factors, most of them not having severe health consequences. However, in some cases, persistent night sweats can be a warning sign of cancer, says Jack Springer, MD, assistant professor of emergency medicine at the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell in New Hyde Park, New York.

Also, according to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, night sweats could be an early sign of lymphoma and leukemia. However, these are usually accompanied by other symptoms such as fever and unexplained weight loss.

Facial puffiness

Most of the times, too much salt or alcohol is held responsible for puffiness in the face. But if you’re stuck with a puffy face longer than what you think it’s normal for your body to recover, it might be a warning sign of a tumor.

According to a study published in The National Journal of Maxillofacial Surgery in 2017, tumors prevent the proper flow of blood, which causes swelling of the eyelids, cheeks and face.
