Symptoms of Breast Cancer
Patients with early stages of breast cancer often don’t have symptoms. This makes the need for yearly mammograms and regular self-examinations even more important in order to detect early stage breast cancer. The presence of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you have breast cancer, but if you have one or more of the following symptoms, please consult your physician.
- Lump in the breast or underarm area
- Enlargement of pores around the breast or nipple area (often described as an orange peel’s texture)
- Dimpling on the breast
- Unexplained swelling or shrinkage of one of the breasts
- Inverted nipple
- Nipple discharge that is clear or bloody
