What To Look For:
Knowing how your breasts normally look and feel can help you be aware of changes that should be reported to a doctor. Most breast changes will not be cancer, but still should be discussed with a doctor. Changes to look for include the following:
- Changes to the size or shape of one or both breasts.
- Unusual, persistent pain in the breast or armpit area.
- Swelling under the armpit or below the collarbone.
- Nipple changes, including change in the shape or position of a nipple, or a nipple that becomes pulled inward (inverted).
- Other things to look for: redness, discharge from one or both nipples, lumps or thickening, skin changes including irritation, rash or scaly skin, and dimpling or puckering.
