Is It Breast Cancer? Warning Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore

Part of 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!
