(ORDO NEWS) — A 51-year-old Australian resident from the city of Melbourne consulted a doctor as hair began to grow on her face. The hairs were small and white. As it turned out, they were a symptom of a fatal disease.
The dermatologist, whom the woman turned to two months later, sent the Australian woman to be tested and undergo computed tomography. As a result, adenocarcinoma was diagnosed, which is a common type of cancer.
The woman smoked for 37 years, but did not have any diseases. Suddenly she noticed the growth of facial hair, a sharp weight loss and the appearance of a cough. Also, the woman experienced a constant feeling of fatigue.
Adenocarcinoma typically affects the lungs, colon, pancreas, and prostate. An Australian woman developed cancer cells in the lower part of her right lung.
Chemotherapy reduced hair growth, coughing and weight loss also disappeared. It is worth noting that sudden body hair growth can begin due to anorexia, gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders, and the use of certain medications.
