Ignoring These Health Issues? You shouldn’t

There are certain areas of our health that we completely overlook or just simply avoid dealing with. We know the main signs of a serious problem with our body. For instance, if we feel a lump anywhere on ourselves, we’re probably going to arrange a doctor’s appointment. Or, if we suddenly start to develop a rash, then off to the doctors we go. But there are some signs that we completely ignore and certain areas that we just don’t want to think about at all. Here are some of the areas of your health you might be avoiding and why that’s a mistake.

Tit For Tat

It’s fair to say that a lot of people don’t check themselves in private areas for health problems as regularly as they should. It’s fairly obvious why this is. Checking yourself there, can feel awkward, and even if you do have a problem, you might be reluctant to make a doctor’s appointment about it. Worst case scenario there’s something seriously wrong. The best case? You openly allowed someone to check down there for absolutely no reason at all. This is why despite the fact that testicular cancer is completely treatable people do die from it, simply because they didn’t want to get it checked out. Or, they never checked for problems there at all.

The best way to handle this is to get your partner to check for you and vice versa. That way, you can make sure you both are staying safe and not missing an area that can lead to serious health complications.

Don’t Fear The Dentist

If you’re honest with yourself you probably do and who could blame you? After all, they have miniature drills that are specifically for causing pain. Of course, that’s not the actual reason for those tools, but that’s what it can feel like. Still, you do need regular checkups with the dentist, and this isn’t just about oral hygiene. Although the effects of gum disease aren’t pretty the effects of oral cancer are a lot worse. If you’ve ever wondered why dentists ask you to close and shut your mouth a few times and move your tongue around, this is why. They’re checking for signs of cancer and other serious health issues that you might not notice yourself.

So, while the trip to the dentist can be unpleasant, it isn’t optional. You need to make sure that you are getting your mouth checked out at least once every six months.

It’s Not All In Your Head

We all deal with headaches on occasion. But if they are getting worse or becoming more frequent, this shouldn’t be ignored, and it shouldn’t be treated with a quick pill either. Headaches are one of the first signs of a serious brain issue. So if you are constantly getting sharp pains in your head, don’t panic, you’re not dying. You should, on the other hand, take a trip to the doctor to find out what’s really going on. Like anything else, if noticed early enough it is possible to fix issues with the brain.

You do need to stop ignoring these health issues because ultimately, you could be putting yourself in serious danger.

  1. Wake up call! A lot of your points reached out to me. These points seem so simple and obvious but yet so easy to put aside. Thank you for the great reminders!

  2. Good on you. We should be talking more about good health rather than fashionable social self destruction that usually involves ignoring people who are stuffed.

  3. Another important thing is to know what the people in your family died from (family history). Genetics are strong and can often supersede lifestyle.

  4. A nice post, unfortunately I think our bodies are an alien to us when we’re suffering unusual behaviors, besides lots of web pages are a bomb to hypochondriac and a thing is sure when you’re going to dentist… you don’t get a ticket to heaven.
    Take care and enjoying our bodies while starting on…

  5. You are completely right! I grew up with many health issues, so I’m actually pretty used to going to the doctor/hosp if something is wrong and I work in the medical field so I know it is always best to be safe than sorry. But I gotta admit…I’m not a fan of the dentist, lol, but I do get in my 2 annual exams >_<

  6. Good advice ive neglected myself for so long that i cant seem to get back to a healthy state My teeth are already gone nothing i can do about that but checking myself never occurred to me ty for the advice.

      1. I appreciate your lovely words, Ula. We are still waiting to get an all-clear-declaration from the doctors and my father-in-law to get back home but it does make me a little more watchful xx

  7. I agree that we should all pay more attention to our bodies to prevent major illnesses. It’s called preventive and wellness checks. Great post Ula.

  8. So very important, definitely don’t leave nagging concerns and health issues, it’s always better ‘to be safe than sorry’ and get the worries off your mind! x
