June 22, 2007, Newsletter Issue #71: Breast Abnormalities Warrant a Call to Your Doctor

Tip of the Week

Breast cancer, like many cancers, can be hidden. Early forms do not usually cause symptoms. Often they cannot be felt by a woman or her doctor. Only when the cancer has grown and spread, are breast cancer symptoms likely to be noticed. These may include:

Lumps or hard spots in the breast tissue or under the arm,
A change in the size, shape, or color of the breast or nipple,
Breast pain or discomfort,
A dimple or pucker in the skin of the breast (kind of like an orange peel),
Scaly skin on the breast,
An inverted nipple,
Visible blood veins in the breast,
Unusual discharge

Should you notice one of these breast cancer signs, or indeed, anything at all unusual about your breasts, do not panic. Cancer is but one of many possible causes. However, pay a visit to your doctor right away
