The World Cancer Research Fund found that increased coffee consumption was associated with a lower risk of developing liver cancer and basal cell carcinoma of the skin. These findings were led by Dr Kostas Tsilidis – a senior lecturer in cancer epidemiology at Imperial College London. Dr Tsilidis said: “Our research found that coffee consumption may be associated with a lower risk of developing liver cancer and basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
Liver cancer may also disrupt your digestion, which can lead to feelings of nausea.
It’s possible that you could feel very full after eating only a small plate of food.
Furthermore, your stomach may be swollen, irregardless if you’ve not eaten much or not at all.
How to minimise risk of liver cancer
The NHS recommend cutting down on alcohol, making sure you drink no more than 14 units per week.
What do BCCs look like?
“BCCs can look like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, scars or growths with slightly elevated, rolled edges and/or a central indentation,” the organisation pointed out.
Some BCCs may ooze fluid, crust, itch, or bleed, and treatment is necessary to stop the cancer from spreading.
“Untreated BCCs can become locally invasive, grow wide and deep into the skin and destroy skin, tissue and bone,” warned the Skin Cancer Foundation.
If you’re concerned about any lesions on your skin, do book an appointment with your doctor or a skin specialist.
