Five Breast Cancer Symptoms You Need To Be Aware Of

Breast cancer is a disease that not only strikes fear in women but in men also.
Each year thousands of women are diagnosed with this disease. While there is
a lot of information available on this type of cancer, many women do not know
the basic facts about it. Performing monthly examinations to detect the early
signs and taking action without delay can be the most critical thing you can
do.

While this sound easy, and it is, you must know what to look for. Here are
several symptoms, not in any particular order, to be aware of.

  1. A depression in any area of the breast surface that you did not notice before.
  2. Veins that become more prominent on one or both breasts just under the
    skin surface.
  3. A lump that is usually small, firm and painless.
  4. Nipples that have a change in skin texture, develop a rash, have a discharge
    (other than breast milk) or that becomes inverted.
  5. A piece of skin on the breast or underarm that swells or that has an unusual
    appearance.

Women who perform the monthly self breast examination already know that their
breasts have a lumpy texture. However, if you do regular self examinations you
will be able to tell the difference between the normal texture and the development
of a lump. If you are not certain, you should see a medical professional immediately.
It is better to be safe.

Did you know: Breast cancer is not limited to only women. Men, while at a much
lower rate, can also get this form of cancer.

The good news is that overall only a small percentage of lumps found are malignant.
Early discovery allows for a greater chance to take action and beat this awful
disease. Each day, more and more women are taking action and surviving to live
normal, healthy and long lives.

I challenge you to begin a buddy program where you can remind each other and
hold each other accountable to perform your monthly self examination. A few
minutes a month could make all the difference.
