Breast Cancer Symptoms and Tips For Cancer Survivor


In early stage, breast cancer may not cause any symptoms. In many cases, a tumor may be too small to be felt, but an abnormality can still be seen on a mammogram. If a tumor can be felt, the first sign is usually a new lump in the breast that was not there before. However, not all lumps are cancer.

Symptoms

The first symptoms of breast cancer usually appear as an area of thickened tissue in the breast or a lump in the breast or an armpit.

Other symptoms include:

  • pain in the armpits or breast that does not change with the monthly cycle

  • pitting or redness of the skin of the breast, similar to the surface of an orange

  • a rash around or on one of the nipples

  • discharge from a nipple, possibly containing blood

  • a sunken or inverted nipple

  • a change in the size or shape of the breast

  • peeling, flaking, or scaling of the skin on the breast or nipple

Most breast lumps are not cancerous. However, women should visit a doctor for an examination if they notice a lump on the breast.
