In initial stages, there are not many apparent symptoms for breast cancer.
While it is still not clear what exactly causes breast cancer but we do know that certain risk factors are linked to the occurrence of disease.
In advanced stages, mostly the cases of breast cancer are found by women themselves when they notice unusual changes in the breast.
The earlier breast cancer is detected, better are the chances of treating it successfully.
Every woman should be ‘breast aware’, which simply means knowing what her normal breasts look and feel like, looking out for any unusual changes and regularly getting them checked out by a doctor.
It’s as simple asTLC
Do you feel anything unusual?
Are there any changes in shape or texture?
Is anything unusual? If you find so, get it checked out by your doctor at the earliest.
Remember, before or during periods, you may normally feel breast tissue changes or experience slight tenderness. So, do not get panicky and alarmed with every minor finding.
Regular self examination of breast will help you understand and identify the difference between normal breast and abnormal symptoms.
Don’t wait for the symptoms to appear. Go for regular breast checkups.
