Symptoms of Breast Cancer

In the early stages, breast cancer might not have any signs. The tumor would be too tiny to be noticed or felt, but a mammogram could be used to find out the problem. When the condition progresses, a new lump in your breast is often the first symptom. Nevertheless, keep in mind that not all lumps are caused by cancerous cells. Each form of breast cancer could trigger a wide range of symptoms. These include pain, tissue thickening, red skin, bloody discharge, swelling, peeling skin, changes in the size or shape of the breast, or inverted nipple. If you notice any of these signs, consult your doctor immediately for a precise diagnosis. [2]
