12 Signs Of Breast Cancer Everyone Must Know!

Today, we are sharing key signs of breast cancer and how you can look for those signs. Remember, a lump by no means cancer. However, you should be checking your breasts regularly.

Thick mass: A sudden thickening of the breast tissue can be a sign of a serious underlying condition such as lobular or inflammatory breast cancer

Indentation: Some people notice a dip, or dent, in the breast. This can be because the cancer is tethered to the breast tissue and so pulls it inwards

Skin erosion: In rare cases cancer that is growing under the skin can break through and create a wound

Heat or redness: If the breast feels warm to touch or there’s redness one-third of the breast, it can be a sign of inflammatory breast cancer

New fluid: Spontaneous nipple discharge on one side, which may be blood stained, brown or clear, might mean there is something in the breast that is causing irritation

Dimpling: Dimpled skin is a common sign of inflammatory breast cancer

Bump: A localized swelling, bulge or bump on the breast should always be investigated

Growing vein: Changes such as dilated veins can be a sign that cancer is blocking a blood vessel

Retracted nipple: Developing an inverted nipple – i.e. not being born with one – which can’t be drawn out, may suggest a lump behind the nipple is pulling it in.

New shape or size: Any change in shape or size not associated with the menstrual cycle should be investigated

Orange peel skin: Skin that has ridges or appears pitted, like the skin of an orange, can be caused by a build-up of fluid in the breast

Invisible lump:  Even there are many other symptoms, it’s crucial to always check your breasts for lumps. A cancerous lump often feels hard and immovable like a lemon seed
