It means you’re not eating as much as you’re used to.

Give yourself a calorie check.  If you’re eating more than 1800/day (women) or 2100/day (men) and you’re not morbidly obese, you’re fine.  If you’re eating about 2/3 of that with your doctor’s assistance, you’re fine.  If you’re eating quite a bit less than that, without your doctor’s strong assistance, you’re ACTUALLY going hungry and should be concerned.

Otherwise, hunger is not an emergency and does not need to be treated.  Your next meal is soon.
