Even if you live a generally healthy lifestyle, it is important to keep an eye on the following warning signs:2

"It should be routine practice to perform skin checks from head to toe," says Okeke-Igbokwe.

"You should look for moles or lesions that stand out and have changed in size, color, or shape.

Any suspicious looking moles or lesions warrants immediate evaluation by your doctor."

2. Constant Headaches

"If you are experiencing headaches that are out of the ordinary β€” in that they are more severe and painful than you can handle β€”you should probably have it checked out," says Dr.

Mia Finkelston, A Board Certified Family Physician who sees patients LiveHealth Online, over email.

"This type of headache can be caused by an infection in the central nervous system or it can be caused by a hemorrhage or bleeding in the brain."

Pelvic pain can be caused by a number of diseases and conditions, but for women, it's especially important to pay attention to chronic pain because it could be related to your reproductive system, according to Mayo Clinic.

Whether or not you're thinking about children in your 20's, you'll want to make sure you don't have anything going on in your ovaries or uterus.

4. Extreme Fatigue

"Twenty somethings may dismiss the feeling of being tired all the time and chalk it up to an active social life," says Finkleston.

"However, constant fatigue could be a sign of anemia." It also could indicate a lack of physical activity, a poor diet, anxiety, depression and more, according to WebMD, so it's important to see a doctor to get to the root of your problem.
