The most common signs of breast cancer

With the continuous popularization of health knowledge, public attention to the disease self-test is also increasing. Especially after the death of the famous singer Liao Beina breast cancer recurrence, many women are gradually understanding and learning the self test methods of breast cancer.

Referring to breast cancer self-test, many people’s first reaction is to carefully touch the bath “Mimi” to see if there is a lump. Indeed, according to the British National Institute for Cancer , breast lumps are the first symptoms of approximately 83% diagnosed breast cancers, with nipple changes and breast pain accounting for 7% and 6% respectively. A small number of patients are diagnosed with breast cancer, such as back pain (1%) and weight loss (0.3%), due to non-breast related symptoms.


Specifically, in addition to breast lumps, the more common signs of breast cancer include the following 4 types:

  1. Rough skin, like orange peel

The normal “Mimi” skin is smooth, delicate and elastic, says Joseph Weber, a Milwaukee breast surgery oncologist in the United States. But breast cancer cancer cells can clog the subcutaneous lymphatic vessels, resulting in the appearance of the skin of the breast changes-fold and collapse.

2. Breast Pain

For girls, breast pain is very common, puberty development will hurt, “Aunt” before the visit will hurt, pregnancy, lactation usually also have painful feeling. Breast cancer-induced breast pain is often without reason, irregular to follow, or at the same time “Mimi” shape and size changes.

3. Nipple “collapse”, inverted

Nipple Inversion does not in itself indicate any problems, some of which are congenital dysplasia , or the size of the bra, the style and the “Mimi” mismatch. But if there is no reason, has been “stand proudly” nipple suddenly occurred “collapse” and inverted, you need to be highly vigilant whether there are breast inflammation, tumors and other potential diseases.

About 7% of patients said they had been diagnosed with a nipple inversion, the National Cancer Research Institute said in a statistical report.

  4. Unilateral nipple bleeding

Similarly, the nipple overflow is not necessarily the manifestation of the disease. Two-sided nipple spills from pregnancy and lactation, taking birth control pills or sedatives, and a small amount of fluid on one or both sides of women after menopauseare normal and common physiological phenomena.

and hemorrhagic overflow (nipple secretion with blood) is a significant feature of breast cancer, generally only occurs in one side of the breast.
