Cancer is difficult to detect in the body and costly because, in most cases, a magnet resonance test is required, which is not always paid for by health insurance.
One of the scariest things that could happen is definitely learning that you have cancer. However, you will be able to treat it and carry on with your life if you discover it in time.
These days, breast cancer is a common disease among women. In fact, it is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths among women and the most often diagnosed cancer.
A study shows that 1/8 of the whole women population in USA will develop breast cancer in their lifespan. However, this doesn’t mean that men are excluded from getting breast cancer, but the probability is one in a thousand.
Here are few tips and signs that you might have an early stage of breast cancer and should check the doctor for further consultations and more accurate diagnose.
Rash and red skin around your nipples
if the rash stays, you should be alarmed. Try eliminating the rush with usual remedies and if stays, consult your doctor.
Your breast size changed
This is probably the most common symptom, since cancer is actually additional tissue. You might check if you’re pregnant first – good news come before bad news, right?
Pain that doesn’t go away
If you take off your bra and the pain is still there, even after a couple of days, you should be alarmed and make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.
Inverted nipples that pull inwards
A clear sign of possible cancerogenic tissue development
Your skin texture on your breasts changed
Any form of puckering and “orange peel” looking skin is a possible sign for cancer.
If you have some of these symptoms, don’t start medication – ask your doctor for opinion!
