Do You Know the Warning Signs of Breast Cancer?
Published: 10/01/2013

Do you know the signs and symptoms that might indicate breast cancer? Learning to recognize the physical signs of breast cancer may save your life – early diagnosis is key to treatment and recovery. Many health professionals recommend performing a monthly self-examination, and a yearly exam performed by your doctor. In addition, the National Cancer Institute suggests keeping an eye out for the following signs:

  1. A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area
  2. A change in the size or shape of the breast
  3. Nipple discharge or tenderness
  4. An inverted nipple
  5. Ridges or pitting on the breast (resembling an orange peel)
  6. A change in the look or feel of the breast, areola or nipple (such as warmth, swelling, redness or a scaly feel)

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your doctor for evaluation. If you are over 40, talk to your doctor about mammograms.
