In honor of this month being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; let’s focus on doing something good on raising awareness for this disease.
In the first place, every day in all parts of the world, Women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Ultimately, you should pay attention to any of the following signs and symptoms:
- Lump under your armpit
- Bloody nipple discharge
- Breast pain or dimple
- Also, change in the size or shape
- Inverted nipple or nipple pain
- Swollen lymph nodes in your neck or armpit
First and foremost, every woman should have a bi-line mammogram by the age of 45. However, if you have any of the above symptoms or a family history of breast cancer, you should immediately see a doctor. Bottom line is a mammogram has the ability to determine if you have cancer.
If cancer is suspected, it is recommended you have a biopsy. At the same time, there are several different types of biopsies available. From a needle aspiration, core, excisional or incisional biopsy, these treatments will help determine what to do next.

Although it is rare for Men to get this type of cancer, every year there are more and more cases. Similarly to symptoms found in Women, you should see a doctor if you have any of the above signs.
