Is It Breast Cancer? Warning Signs You Shouldn't Ignore
Part of the Breast Cancer For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Breast cancer has some obvious and not-so-obvious symptoms that you shouldn't ignore. Pay attention to your breast health so that you can identify changes early on. Schedule an appointment with your doctor right away if you experience any of the following symptoms in one or both breasts:
A new firm lump or mass in your breast
Your nipple suddenly becomes inverted (goes in) or dimpled
Discharge from your breast other than milk that comes out on its own
You're being treated for an infection of the breast and it doesn't get any better or any worse after a week or two
Don't panic, but don't delay!
