DETECTION & DIAGNOSIS / THINGS YOU SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR

  • - any tumor or mass in your breast
  • - any change in your breast skin, such as redness
  • - any tumor under the axilla
  • - any change in the form of your breast or your nipple
  • - any abnormal liquid secretion from your nipple, or a liquid that contains blood
  • - any incurable ulceration on your skin or your nipple

If you find any of the symptoms above, you should contact your doctor immediately, but without panicking. Most of the time, the change or inflammation will be a benign tumor, such as a water, milk, or lipid cyst, or a microbial infection or fibrosis. In some cases though, it might be the beginning of the growth of a malignant tumor. Your doctor will be able to diagnose your change. You should not let shyness or fear stop you from going to see your doctor. Early detection can save your life.
