Initially, the breast cancer may not cause any symptoms. A lump maybe to small for you to feel or to cause any unusual changes you notice on your own. In some cases, however, the first sign of breast cancer is a new lump or mass in the breast that you can feel. A lump that is painless, hard and has uneven edges is more likely to be a cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, any of the following unusual changes in the breast can be a symptoms of breast cancer. These are some kind of things you should notice :
1. Symptoms that you can see or feel; swelling or lump (mass) in the breast, swelling in the armpit (lymph nodes), nipple discharge (clear or bloody), pain in the nipple, inverted or retracted nipple, scaly or pitted skin on nipple, persistent tenderness of the breast, unusual breast pain or discomfort.
2. Symptoms that seen on breast imaging; micro calcification in tight clusters, dense mass with spiky (speculated) outline.
3. Metastatic Symptoms; bone pain (bone metastases), shortness of breath (lung metastases),drop in appetite (liver metastases), unintentional weight loss (liver metastases), headaches, neurological pain or weakness (could be brain metastases).
If you feel like that those symptoms happened to you, it’s better for you to contact your doctor immediately to recognized whether you have breast cancer or not.
