“Breast cancer” is a scary phrase and finding out that you might have symptoms of cancer can be confusing and frightening. However, checking your breasts for signs of breast cancer regularly can help you catch the disease early, which can drastically improve your treatment options.
These 6 signs might be a sign of breast cancer and should be a reason to talk to your doctor. Additionally, don’t forget to check at which age your primary physician recommends that you start getting regular mammograms and other screening tests. When you start these, which tests you need and how often you should have them is dependent on your health and your family history. Remember that a family history of breast cancer doesn’t necessarily mean you will get it, but no family history of breast cancer does not mean you are safe. Don’t forget that the health history on your father’s side of the family is also important to discuss with your doctor.
