WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

Homes+ (Australia) - - PLUS HEALTH -

Can­cer Aus­tralia says breast changes you need to look out for reg­u­larly in­clude:

A new lump, or lumpi­ness, es­pe­cially if it’s only in one breast;

A change in the shape or size of your breast;

A change to the nip­ple, such as crust­ing, ul­cer, red­ness or in­ver­sion;

A nip­ple dis­charge that oc­curs with­out squeez­ing; A change in the skin over your breast such as red­ness or dim­pling;

Or an un­usual pain that doesn’t go away.

If you no­tice any of th­ese, see your doc­tor. Young women who are con­cerned about their fam­ily his­tory and their risk for breast and ovar­ian can­cer can speak to their doc­tor about hav­ing an as­sess­ment.
