Dr Fox online pharmacy consultant Deborah Lee said that hyperhidrosis – profuse sweating at night, can signal oncology.
According to the specialist, hyperhidrosis is a “red flag” for doctors, and in some cases it may indicate serious diseases such as leukemia or cancer of the lymphatic system. Therefore, this symptom should not be taken lightly.
A special cause for concern should be the regularity of night sweats. It can last for several weeks and more than once a night.
In addition, you should listen to your body. If the night sweat is so strong that it forces you to get out of bed and change everything, as well as take a shower, then you should not hesitate and contact a specialist the next day.
