Ten Signs That Could Indicate Health Issues

It can be difficult to realize that seemingly insignificant tiny things can indicate a health issue. A scalloped tongue, for instance, can be a sign that you’ve eaten too much salty food. Conversely, it can indicate that the tongue is starting to enlarge over the jaw.

1. Dark circles

Dark circles come from lifestyle issues: not getting enough sleep or an unhealthy lifestyle.

2. Yellowing of the skin

The yellow color on the skin or eye whites is a common skin symptom of liver issues. Go see a doctor as soon as possible to prevent serious health complications.

3. Finger pain

Thickened fingers can reveal health problems related to lungs, kidneys, or breast cancer. If you experience swelling on your fingers, go see a doctor ASAP!

4. Women’s hair growth in unusual places

Unusual hair growth around the chin or above the lips can be a symptom of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome: when ovaries grow because of a hormonal imbalance.

5. A pimple that doesn’t heal in time

If a pimple stays there for weeks, it might be a sign of basal cell carcinoma. Get it checked out.

6. Eyebrows getting thinner

Thinning eyebrows can be a sign of hypothyroidism. You might want to go have that check-up now.

7. Acne on the jawline area

Acnes along the jawline or in the chin can say a lot of a hormonal imbalance.

8. Thickening/Darkening of the skin

Thickened or darkened skin may be a sign of insulin resistance. This might lead to type 2 diabetes.

9. Black lines/ spots on nails

Dark vertical lines can be a sign

of melanoma unless you might have hurt your finger somewhere.

10. A scalloped tongue

A tongue that is scalloped indicates that it is growing bigger than the lower jaw. Swelling is the root cause of this illness. Swelling can result from various factors. For instance, you frequently eat foods high in salt.
