Losing weight is a goal of many people, and while it is usually a great way to improve your overall health, losing weight without trying could potentially be caused by your body burning extra calories to fight off a tumor without you realizing it. Cancer-related weight loss that happens when a patient makes no efforts to loose weight or no changes to their diet is called cachexia, and can cause someone to wither away as their body tries to heal itself. If you or a loved one experience a sudden lack of appetite or weight loss, you should schedule an appointment to see a doctor.
