Early warning signs
for breast cancer

Breast cancer affects millions of women
across the globe every year. According to the
World Health Organization, breast cancer
is the most frequent cancer among women,
affecting 2.1 million women each year. As
daunting as that may seem, the WHO also
notes that early diagnosis can greatly reduce
a woman’s risk of dying from breast cancer.
Women can be proactive in the fight
against breast cancer by learning to
identify early warning signs of the disease.
The nonprofit breast cancer advocacy
organization Susan G. Komen notes that the
warning signs for breast cancer are not the
same for all women, but the most common
signs include a change in the look or feel
of the breast or a change in the look or feel
of the nipple. A discharge from the nipple
is another common warning sign of breast
Physical changes in the breast can vary,
but Susan G. Komen advises women who
notice these changes to bring them to the
attention of their physicians immediately:
• Lump, hard knot or thickening inside of the
breast or underarm area
• Change in the size or shape of the breast
• Swelling, warmth, redness or darkening of
the breast
• Dimpling or puckering of the skin
Women with breast cancer also may notice
physical changes in their nipples, including:
• Itchy, scaly sore or rash on the nipple

• Pulling in of the nipple or other parts of the
It’s important that women recognize that
physical changes in their breasts are not
necessarily indicative of breast cancer. In
fact, the American Breast Cancer Foundation
notes that not all lumps in the breast cause
cancer and that many such lumps are benign.
Fibroadenomas and intraductal papillomas
are examples of benign lumps, though
it’s important to note that even benign
conditions such as these may put women at
greater risk of developing breast cancer.
Susan G. Komen notes that breast tissue
naturally has a lumpy texture. If lumpiness
can be felt throughout the breast and it feels
like your other breast, then it’s likely that this
is just the normal texture of your breasts.
However, women concerned by a lump or
lumpy texture are urged to discuss those
concerns with their physicians immediately.
Discharge from the nipple is another
potential sign of breast cancer, but Susan G.
Komen notes that such discharge is rarely a
sign of cancer. Discharges that occur without
squeezing the nipple, occur in only one
breast or are bloody or clear are potentially
indicative of more serious conditions,
including breast cancer.
Breast cancer is a formidable foe. But
women who arm themselves with knowledge
of the disease, including its early warning
signs, are in better position to overcome it.
