In brief: Common symptoms
Specific symptoms such as a changing mole (melanoma), difficulty swallowing (esophageal cancer), enlarging lymph glands (lymphoma), bloody stools (colon & rectal cancer), blood sputum (lung cancer).
Also general things such as unexplained weight loss, low blood levels, persistent fevers, severe fatigue, progressive shortness of breath, etc.

In brief: Depends
Some cancers can have signs and symptoms while others don't until advanced stages.
Development of any symptoms that are especially persistent and worsening and a general change in health for the worse including a general sense of non well being, yo should be evaluated by a doctor for a thorough workup.
