A unique case became known from data provided by the UK National Medical System. The patient’s only symptom of lung cancer was pain … in the heel.
In addition to constant pain in the heel, the man did not show any complaints about the symptoms characteristic of this case – he did not have shortness of breath, cough, pain, increased fatigue or hemoptysis, says the Daily Express.
A 47-year-old patient from Singapore was diagnosed with a blood clot that formed during cancer and migrated to the leg. Doctors do not deny that such cases cannot be called standard, but they urge to pay attention to the possibility of their occurrence.
If a sufficiently strong and intense pain bothers for two weeks or more, experts recommend not to ignore it. An immediate visit to a doctor will help determine the cause of its occurrence and take adequate measures. Special attention should be paid to the condition of the feet, experts remind, for diabetics.
Of course, oncology is far from the only cause of heel pain, but it is important to determine its cause in time. For example, a heel spur. Its first symptoms appear suddenly and abruptly, immediately after waking up and getting out of bed. “Diverging”, the person ceases to feel it, but after walking a little, again complains of pain.
As the inflammatory process develops, painful sensations arise more and more often. It is inflammation, as recent studies have shown, that becomes the cause of the heel spur – against its background, the calcium compaction characteristic of this disease is formed, and not vice versa, as was previously believed.
But inflammation, as a rule, occurs against the background of overstrain of various structures of the foot. Why is this happening, and they overexert themselves? The answer to the question helps to find osteopathy. After all, in order to cure a patient, it is necessary to find the cause of the problem and eliminate it. The sensitive hands of the doctor unmistakably diagnose the problem and, as a result of osteopathic treatment, in just a few sessions, it is eliminated.
There are other methods, in this case there is simply no “gold standard” of treatment. But first, in any case, you should not ignore the pain – in this way the body signals the problem that has arisen – and visit a doctor for diagnosis.
