Many people experience unpleasant itching after a hot shower. A similar phenomenon may signal the development of leukemia. Eugene Ana, an oncologist at the Cancer Treatment Center of America (CTCA), shared similar thoughts.
“Blood cancer most often affects people over 40, so if you are over this age and notice severe itching after a shower, you need to visit a doctor and do a complete blood count”the expert noted.
According to him, itching appears due to the fact that in the early stages of the disease, histamine-containing cells become hypersensitive. It is for this reason that the reaction of the skin to hot water changes.
By the way, oncologist Andrei Vorobyov said that calcium taken in the form of a supplement can reduce the risk of colon cancer, which is one of the most common types of oncology.
“However, the exact mechanism by which calcium may help reduce cancer risk is unclear.”– quotes the words of the oncologist “Evening Moscow”.
