There obviously isn’t any single, independent symptom which stands out and points at child sexual abuse, but a victim should show signs of some or most of these symptoms, nonetheless.
It is a very difficult topic to discuss with someone. Maybe you are the victim yourself and you see some of these symptoms in your own life. If they are adversely affecting your life, then it is best to talk to a psychologist or a medical doctor about it and maybe they can give you some help in overcoming the trauma, once and for all. Study these sexual abuse symptoms in adults first and if you feel you need help, then by all means consult a professional counselor.
