A woman in the United Kingdom learned this from a friend who saw an article in an online newspaper and it may have saved her life.
Claire Warner didn’t feel ill and she felt no lump but she read the article recommended by her friend about a woman who noticed a dimple on her breast and had posted a photograph on Facebook to raise awareness—the post went viral. (1)
The dimple was an early sign of breast cancer.
Claire then examined her own breasts and found a similar dimple—she followed the previous example and posted a photo of her own breast that shows a slight shadow.
Something so subtle is very easy to miss unless you’re looking for it.
- A change in size or shape
- Redness or a rash on the skin and/or around the nipple
- Discharge that comes from the nipple without squeezing
- A swelling in your armpit or around your collarbone
- A lump or thickening that feels different from the rest of the breast tissue
- A change in skin texture, such as puckering or dimpling, similar to an orange peel
- Your nipple becoming inverted (pulled in) or changing its position or shape
- Constant pain in your breast or armpit
- Inexplicable pain in the back, ribs, or side that doesn’t go away
It’s important to examine your breasts regularly but not during your menstrual period, when breast changes are normal and will disappear at the end of the cycle. Should you find one or more of the changes listed that don’t go away, it’s time to see your healthcare practitioner.
Beware of mammogram as a cancer screening test; there is very strong evidence that it is no more effective than self-palpation and in reality injures sensitive breast tissue with each occurrence, thereby increasing the risk for developing cancer. Thermography is a much less invasive and effective diagnostic tool.
Men can contract breast cancer, too.
While rare—accounting for one percent of all diagnosed breast cancer—men can develop cancer in breast tissue.
- Breast cancer risk in men is increased by elevated levels of estrogen, previous radiation exposure, environmental toxins, and a family history of breast cancer.
- Mutations in specific genes are associated with an increase in risk for breast cancer in men.
- Infiltrating ductal carcinoma is the most common type of male breast cancer, in which abnormal cells form in ducts in breast tissue and begin to spread to the surrounding areas.
- A lump beneath the nipple is the most common symptom of male breast cancer.
- Male breast cancer is staged (reflecting the extent of tumor spread) identically to breast cancer in women. (1)
