Breast cancer signs and nutrition for breast health

Lump

Of course, that’s not to say you should stop inspecting your breasts. In the new study, 83 percent of the women who had breast cancer symptoms and were diagnosed found a lump first. But a little more awareness of other signs can’t hurt. “Our results highlight opportunities for a shift in emphasis in symptom awareness campaigns toward breast symptoms other than breast lump,” the researchers write. “If women notice any changes in their breasts, they need to have a professional evaluate them,” Weber agrees. “Talk to a doctor about anything that looks different from their normal appearance.” Here are a few of those symptoms to watch out for.

DIMPLING OR SCALY SKIN

A rough patch of skin that feels scaly or thicker than usual or skin that starts to dimple can signal breast cancer, Weber says. With some breast cancers, channels that go from the inside of the breast to the skin become blocked, resulting in skin changes that make the breast look like it’s covered in an orange peel.

Swelling

Sometimes a lump can be lurking under the surface, even if a woman can’t feel it. This might change the shape or size of a breast, and could even result in some pain, which 6 percent of women in the recent research reported.

NIPPLE CHANGES

Some breast cancers will cause what’s called nipple inversion or retraction, in which the nipple turns inward. (Here are 8 things your nipples say about your health.) Typically, that’s because a mass is growing inside the breast and changes its shape, Weber explains. In the recent research, 7 percent of the women who were diagnosed with breast cancer reported nipple abnormalities.

NIPPLE DISCHARGE

Another possible nipple abnormality can be discharge that’s not breast milk. Nipple discharge is, thankfully, most often not cancer, but it’s important to see a doctor immediately if the discharge comes out without you touching or squeezing the nipple, especially if it’s bloody and only affecting one side.

Connie’s comments:  First step is for daily checking with your own two fingers and find abnormal skin growth, irritations and lumps.
Then strive for maximum nutrition. I recommend the following supplementation:
