11 Sneaky Signs of Breast Cancer
“Breast cancer can sneak up on you before you have any sort of clue as to what’s going on. In part, that’s because most women are on the lookout for a lump in their breasts—and not for other common indicators. That’s a mistake, because while a lump is the most recognized symptom of this dreaded disease, it’s by no means the only one. Different kinds of cancer produce different symptoms, and many cancers produce no lumps at all.
The National Cancer Institute estimates that over 190,000
women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually. One in 8 women will contract breast cancer in her lifetime. Though the disease gone untreated can be deadly, when breast cancer is detected
early, in what is called the “localized stage,” the 5-year survival rate is 100 percent. Being aware of possible symptoms other than a lump in your breast could save your life.”
