Most Common Signs of Breast Cancer

” Lumps in the breast – The most commonly recognized sign of breast cancer is detecting a lump in the breast from self-examination or during a doctor’s examination. Lumps may occur because of a blockage in the milk ducts of the breast. This causes a distinct lump.

” Blood discharge from the nipple – Blood from the nipple may be caused from non-cancerous growths in the breast’s ducts. These ducts become inflamed and a discharge occurs. If a lump or mass is found at the same time of the discharge it may be a sign of breast cancer.

” Visible changes – Swelling of the breast or other visible changes may signal breast cancer. The skin of the breast’s nipples may be altered with the onset of breast cancer and tumors may cause changes in the size of the breast and the appearance of the skin.

” Dimpled skin of the breasts – Redness and/or dimpled skin around the breast area is a reason to have your breasts checked. It could be a sign of inflammatory breast cancer, manifesting itself by aching, tightness and burning in the breast tissue.

” Flaking of nipple skin – Flaking or itchy nipples may be caused by irritation from laundry detergent or irritation from clothing. If the symptoms last longer than a few days or become worse, it could be a sign of inflammatory breast disease or cancer.
