Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases.

Anyone who discovers certain changes in their body should go to a doctor and be examined.

Kassel – Cancer is still one of the most common causes of death.

Cancer has long been referred to as a kind of widespread disease.

While some types of tumors are easily treatable, other types are hardly or not at all curable.

But which cancer is the most dangerous?

Two types of cancer are particularly common in Germany.

In women, this is breast cancer, which accounts for around 30 percent of all cancers.

In men, prostate cancer accounts for almost 25 percent, according to the German Cancer Research Center.

However, in terms of mortality, prostate cancer is not as deadly as breast cancer.

The Deadliest Cancers: What are the Symptoms?

It is important that not every change in the body and not every symptom immediately indicates cancer.

The American Cancer Society also emphasizes this and explains: “Most signs and symptoms are not caused by cancer, but can have other causes.

If you have signs and symptoms that won't go away or are getting worse, you should see a doctor to find out what's causing them."

While some early cancer symptoms are similar, there are also specific warning signs depending on the type of tumor.

Below are the most common signs of lung, pancreas and breast cancer published by the German Cancer Research Center:
