Symptoms of Breast Cancer

 

Other possible symptoms of breast cancer include:
  • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt)
  • Skin irritation or dimpling.
  • Breast or nipple pain.
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward)
  • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin.
  • Nipple discharge (other than breast milk)

Symptoms of Breast Cancer

 

Pain
It ’usually the main cause that leads a woman to ask a specialist. It is often bilateral and associated with the menstrual cycle, it is sometimes unilateral and lasts even after the cycle or after menopause appears: in each case the pain does not have any connection with the tumor, being mainly related to functional causes.

 

Symptoms of Breast Cancer

The nodules
One must distinguish between diffuse nodularity and single nodule. The first is generally linked to the shape of the breast or glandular (after 35-40 years) in the presence of small cysts: therefore has no importance.

The nodule is isolated but an important symptom and requires a specialist. But do not be alarmed the first time, because most of the lumps and breast changes are benign.

Symptoms of Breast Cancer

 

The secretion
It ’a frequent symptom and almost always linked to a benign condition. A modest physiological secretion is often linked to inflammation or temporary. If the discharge is continuous or serosanguineous may be due to the presence of a papilloma (benign lesion) or, rarely, a tumor. In this case, you should consult to a specialist.
