6 Signs of Breast Cancer

Dr. Weil’s Women’s Interest Newsletter, Wednesday 10/01/2014 shared some very important information:

6 Signs of Breast Cancer

Do you know the signs and symptoms that might indicate breast cancer? Personal and family histories of breast cancer and lifestyle habits (including diet, exercise and how you handle stress) can all affect breast cancer risk. But even those with low-risk profiles should learn to recognize the signs of breast cancer, as early diagnosis is key to treatment and recovery. Many health professionals still recommend performing a monthly self-examination, and a yearly exam performed by your doctor. In addition, the National Cancer Institute suggests keeping an eye out for the following signs:

A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area

A change in the size or shape of the breast

Nipple discharge or tenderness

An inverted nipple

Ridges or pitting on the breast (resembling an orange peel)

A change in the look or feel of the breast, areola or nipple (such as warmth, swelling, redness or a scaly feel)

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your doctor for evaluation. If you are over 40, talk to your doctor about mammograms.CDI SC 410_breast health
