Symptoms of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer symptoms

–  Painless Breast Lump

This is one of the most common symptoms of Breast Cancer. A patient might see a painless lump on any part of their breast.

Although it is an important sign, most patients ignore it as it causes no pain. They approach the doctor only when the lump grows and becomes painful.

This is a big mistake. If you see any lump on your breast, consult your doctor immediately.

Not all lumps are cancerous, but you should not take the risk. Approaching the doctor at the earliest is the best decision you can make.


–  Lump in Axilla (Armpit) Region

A lump or mass in the armpit (axilla) region can be a symptom of breast cancer.

These lumps may feel hard, irregular, and immovable. It is important to note that lumps in the axilla can also be caused by benign conditions such as cysts or fibroadenomas.


–  Thickening of Breast Tissue

Thickening or hardening of the breast tissue can be a sign of breast cancer.

This thickening may feel like a lump or mass and may be accompanied by breast pain.

Red discharge from the nipple is a possible symptom of breast cancer.

This discharge may be clear, bloody, or yellow. Other symptoms, such as breast pain or lumps in the breast, can also accompany it.

It’s important to note that red discharge can also be caused by other conditions, such as infection or injury, so it’s important to see a doctor to rule out any serious underlying causes.

This can occur on one or both breasts and may be accompanied by redness or rash.
