In brief: Yes

But not always. It depends on the type of cancer and where it has spread.
Bone pain, abdominal pain, skin turning yellow, cough, weakness or numbness in an arm or leg, dizziness and headache are some possible symptoms. Sometimes cancer spreads silently and may only show up on imaging tests.

In brief: Yes

In patients with a history of treated cancer, certain symptoms are suggestive of metastatic cancer. Typically these may include: unexplained weight loss, persistent high fevers, drenching night sweats, severe fatigue, severe pain, new seizures, mental changes among others.
