Breast Cancer Symptoms

Like most other cancers, early stages of breast cancer usually do not present any symptoms. This is why regular mammograms are essential to detect any abnormality in the breasts, especially if you are above 40 years old. As cancer develops, some of these breast cancer symptoms may develop:

  •  A lump or thickening in or near the breasts or the armpits
  •  A mass or lump, which may feel as small as a pea in or near the breasts or armpits
  •  Pain or tenderness in the breasts
  •  A noticeable dent of the breasts
  •  The nipples are sucked in, or the skin around them is scaly, red or has a persistent rash
  •  A change in the size and shape of the breasts, or a loss of symmetry
  •  Skin around the breasts is dimpled like an orange peel skin or appears swollen and thick
  •  When you gently squeeze your nipples, they bleed or release a discharge.
