Most women have naturally lumpy areas in their breasts. However, if you notice changes in your breasts (including unusual lumps and pain or tenderness) it could be an early sign of cancer. See your doctor for a mammogram. Be sure to bring specific concerns to the doctor's attention.

Catch Breast Cancer Early ?

Breast cancer is a disease that affects millions of women each year. Many survive the disease and subsequent treatment but others are too late in being diagnosed and are not fortunate enough to receive a good prognosis when dealing with their breast cancer. This disease is a tricky one because it often does not have any symptoms. Women look for signs of breast cancer on a regular basis, but many women experience no symptoms at all. Those that do experience symptoms may have a better chance of being diagnosed earlier, which means a better chance of survival. Even when you have a lump in your breast, which is the most telling sign that you are facing breast cancer, it may be too small for you to feel during a routine self breast exam. When a lump is noticeable in the breast, one that is rough, jagged around the edges and hard to touch is likely cancer. However, even if you notice a soft, rounded lump it is not necessarily benign; some women have felt this type of lump only to be diagnosed as breast cancer by a doctor. Anytime you notice any sort of lump in your breast you should have your doctor check you for cancer. The American Cancer Society encourages women to be on the lookout for symptoms such as swelling in any portion of the breast, dimpling or irritation of the skin on the breast, pain in the breast and/or a lump in the area under the arm. Each of these symptoms is indicative of breast cancer and should be followed up on with a doctor immediately. In addition, there are several ways your nipples will let you know if you are suffering from breast cancer. Should your nipples begin turning inward or become painful, turn red or scaly or begin to thicken or if they are excreting anything other than breast milk you should have your breasts checked by your doctor immediately. The earlier breast cancer is caught, the better. Early stage breast cancer is easier to treat than cancer in a later stage, which means your chance of surviving breast cancer is far greater.

There can be a few reasons why: Maybe your breast muscles are tightening or if you can a lumo/bump on your breast that can be serious so if you do go get a mammogram done to make sure there can't be a tumor developing!

What are the signs of breast cancer?

I would pay attention to any swelling in the breast, pain in the breast and especially any unusual lumps or knots you may find. Don't forget to give yourself a breast exam every month.1,There is a lump in the breast cancer, and the texture of mass is relatively hard can be moved.2,The Nipple discharge is red, yellow, or colorless but you can not touch the bump in the breast. Of which about 15% are malignant.3, As breast cancer patients is often accompanied by hyperplasia, So few patients have varying degrees of breast pain or tingling, Do not mistakenly believe that "cancer pain who do not, those non-cancer pain." .4, Other changes, such as nipple desquamation, Erosion, Retraction, Both sides of the Breast asymmetry, And local skin with mild depression and so on. Than that for early signs for early detection and early treatment.When looking for the symptoms on your own, though, lumps on the chest area , underarm , or collar bone are definite red flags.It is possible to have breast cancer with no signs. That's why monthly self exams and annual mammograms are recommended.
