Common but Often Overlooked Signs of Breast Cancer
So when you are doing all those self exams, looking for a lump or a pea or a kumquat or a gumball, did you know there are other signs of breast cancer that are commonly overlooked?
Any or all of these may signal breast cancer is present:
An itchy boob,
A red boob,
A scaly boob,
A swollen boob,
A thickening in your boob,
A dimple in your boob,
An inverted or even slightly retracted nipple.
In addition to your annual mammogram after the age of 40, and regular self exams mid-cycle, know the other common signs of breast cancer,
and don't ignore them.
That was how I discovered my breast cancer, an itchy breast and a slight dimpling near my left nipple.
Diagnostics would go on to confirm what I already suspected.
Somethin just wasn't right.
Look at your body. Listen to your body.
Take good good care of you.
