12 SIGNS OF BREAST CANCER WOMEN MUST KNOW

Thick mass: A sudden thickening of the breast tissue can be a sign of a serious underlying condition such as lobular or inflammatory breast cancer
Indentation: Some people notice a dip, or dent, in the breast. This can be because the cancer is tethered to the breast tissue and so pulls it inwards
Skin erosion: In rare cases cancer that is growing under the skin can break through and create a wound
Heat or redness: If the breast feels warm to touch or there’s redness one-third of the breast, it can be a sign of inflammatory breast cancer

New fluid: Spontaneous nipple discharge on one side, which may be blood stained, brown or clear, might mean there is something in the breast that is causing irritation
Dimpling: Dimpled skin is a common sign of inflammatory breast cancer
Bump: A localised swelling, bulge or bump on the breast should always be investigated
Growing vein: Changes such as dilated veins can be a sign that cancer is blocking a blood vessel
Retracted nipple: Developing an inverted nipple – i.e. not being born with one – which can’t be drawn out, may suggest a lump behind the nipple is pulling it in.
New shape or size: Any change in shape or size not associated with the menstural cycle should be investigated
Orange peel skin: Skin that has ridges or appears pitted, like the skin of an orange, can be caused by a build up of fluid in the breast
Invisible lump:  Even there are many other symptoms, it’s crucial to always check your breasts for lumps. A cancerous lump often feels hard and immovable like a lemon seed

A heart did nothing for awareness. I knew what breast cancer was. I knew all about self exams, but a picture of what to look for keyed me into knowing I had a terminal disease,’ she said.
‘We need to give REAL information, not cute hearts. Without having seen a picture randomly with real information, I wouldn’t have known what to look for.
‘Do us a favor, stop playing games with my life and start truly helping people. Metastatic breast cancer treatment research and real awareness.’
