The Urgent Warning Breast Cancer Symptoms

Breast cancer

Breast cancer may be an incredibly common form of cancer in women, but that doesn’t mean that every woman knows what to look out for. In fact, there are many different signs and symptoms associated with breast cancer that you might not even know about.

Unusual swelling in the breast

Swelling in the breast, neck, armpit or underarm is a red flag for breast cancer. An increase in size or asymmetry may also be a sign of cancer. This can be a result of fluid buildup as well, but it should still be discussed with your doctor. Contact your doctor if you notice any swelling or changes to your breast that don’t go away after 2-3 days.

A change in the shape of your breasts

Some changes in your breasts are normal and might not be signs of breast cancer. However, you should contact a doctor if you notice any of the following symptoms: -Your breasts feel swollen or heavy. -You can’t find a comfortable position when you sleep because it feels like something is pushing on your breastbone. -One or both of your breasts feels larger than the other one. -Your nipple looks different, such as being twisted or pulled to one side. -You have dimpling around your nipples, which may be caused by scars from previous infections or surgeries. -You’ve noticed a rash on or around your nipples that doesn’t go away after three months.

Skin irritation around your nipples

One of the most common symptoms of breast cancer is skin irritation around the nipple. The skin around the nipple can become red, itchy or sore to touch. This can happen long before any other signs of breast cancer are present, even if you’ve had a mammogram recently or don’t have dense breasts. It’s important to go see your doctor if you notice any changes in this area.

Pain or tenderness that does not go away

One of the most common breast cancer signs is pain or tenderness that does not go away. If you notice pain or tenderness in your breasts, it’s important to tell your doctor about it because it can be a sign of breast cancer. Breast pain can be difficult to describe, but some people say their breasts feel swollen, heavy, tight, or sensitive to touch. If you’re experiencing any one of these symptoms, talk with your doctor right away.

Fluid leaking from one or both nipples

If you notice a watery, milky discharge from one or both nipples (or areola), it could be a sign of early breast cancer. The discharge could be due to the changes in hormone levels that often happen before cancer develops. This is called ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). DCIS can turn into invasive cancer if not treated.

Changes to the skin on your breasts

– a lump that you can see or feel, either on the surface or just underneath your skin – an open sore that doesn’t heal after two weeks – nipple discharge other than breast milk (this might be thin or thick) – dimpled or puckered skin over the lump

New lumps near your breasts or under your arms

It is possible that you may have a breast tumor without experiencing any symptoms. If you notice any new lumps near your breasts or under your arms, contact your doctor as soon as possible. You should also take note of the size, shape, consistency, color, and location of the lump. Your doctor will examine the lump and perform tests to determine if it is benign or cancerous.

A lump near where your collarbone meets your chest wall

One of the first signs of breast cancer is a lump in the breast. It’s important to remember that there are other causes, so if you find one, it’s best to seek out medical attention. When a woman feels a lump, she should examine her breasts for other abnormalities or lumps. If she finds any, she should go to the doctor as soon as possible. Some other common symptoms include: nipple discharge or itching; redness or scaling around the nipple; changes in size or shape of the breast; nipple retraction; dimpling skin; stretch marks on skin around nipples.

A new pain radiating down one of your arms

It is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, especially if you are a woman. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and it can develop at any age. These are some of the most common indications that could indicate breast cancer:

A new pain radiating down one of your arms, a change in breast shape or size, changes in nipple appearance or sensation, discharge from one nipple only (without having taken hormonal contraceptives), fluid leaking from the nipple without squeezing, dimpling of skin over the breastbone or underarm area (can be seen when you push on your chest with your fingers), a lump found either in front of the armpits or under an armpit; these lumps can often be felt by pressing gently with a fingertip.

Nipple discharge that is bloody, brown, black, blue, green, red or white 

could be a sign of breast cancer. Discharge can be from the nipple or from under the arm or in the armpit. You may also notice a nipple dimple or inverted nipple.These signs can be caused by other health problems that are not cancerous; however it’s important to talk to your doctor about any change in your body. If you notice these signs then contact your doctor right away for more information on whether to have a mammogram and/or biopsy done.
