Is that Lump Sign of Breast Cancer?
The breast cancer program in India includes spreading the awareness about breast cancer from its early symptoms and it is included as a significant point of there program which aims to save the people from the fatal impact of cancer.
To the question, why it is so important to know the symptoms of breast cancer? The answer lies in the life-threatening impact of breast cancer. Undoubtedly, cancer is one of the most dangerous medical condition in which breast cancer is categorized as one of the severe ones. For saving the life of the person who is detected with breast cancer, a detailed program of diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation is required to save the life of the patient. In many cases, the side effects of the prescribed medications and therapies provided to treat the patient are prominent in nature which interfere with the normal lifestyle of the patient. Therefore, it is our responsibility to understand how breast cancer develops and what changes in the breast plus, its surrounding area (chest and armpits) can be the symptoms of breast cancer so as to provide a customised treatment immediately. This increases the chances of saving the life of the patient.
To check the breasts, one does not have to be a medical expert. We are familiar with the shape and size of our breasts, any change in the structure can be felt by us. If it happens, do consider your intuition and go to a doctor immediately for further screening. The formation of a lump on the breasts is a common sign of breast cancer and the experts specifically state that any lump not only on breasts but even if it is present in the armpits or around the collarbone, it could be a possible manifestation of breast cancer. The lump is hard in structure and its shape is not regular. Another fact which has to be considered is that the detection of the lump by the affected person herself does not confirms the condition of breast cancer until. It is important to consult an expert in the field and unless the expert does not diagnose breast cancer, the detection cannot be confirmed as a sign of breast cancer and not all lumps are cancerous in nature, some of them are benign (or non-cancerous)
Apart from the lump, there are various other changes which can be the manifestations of breast cancer. Particularly, any change in the structure and texture of the breast should not be ignored and medical help should be immediately sought. Any change in the skin texture of and around the breasts such as swelling in the area or rashes/itching, all these alterations can be categorised as the early signs of breast cancer. If the nipple(s) turned inward or the skin of the breast seems to be puckered or dimpled, they can be counted as the manifestations of breast cancer. The doctors with extensive experience in the field state that enlargement of one breast or any unusual discharge from one breast should be seen as a symptom of breast cancer which should be diagnosed through a screening.
Considering all the impacts of breast cancer, one should disciplinary go for a period screening of breast cancer under the supervision of a cancer specialist and this should be particularly followed by women who have passed away the youth phase because with this stage of chronological development, the rate of replacement of old blood cells slows down and the time period for a usual recovery period (as per the medical condition) is increased. Therefore, the cancer specialists advice women to go for a periodic screening. Every woman should check their breasts on a normal basis, touch and feel its structure, in the shower or whenever is comfortable and possible. These help in understanding the structure and changes in the breast. Plus, undergo proper regular screening to remain healthy and safe.
