According to the Medical News Today portal, breast cancer can often be asymptomatic, but it is important to detect it in time so that the possibilities of treatment increase.

The eight symptoms that we will see below may be due to other conditions, however, we must be alert because they could be signs of breast cancer.

1. CHANGES IN SKIN TEXTURE

Breast cancer can cause inflammation, which in turn will cause the skin to peel around the nipple or thicken any part of the breast.

2. NIPPLE DISCHARGE

It is normal for the breasts to have secretions during the breastfeeding period. However, if these fluids are yellow, green or with the presence of blood, it is necessary to consult the doctor.

3. DIMPLING

Inflammatory breast cancer is an aggressive type of cancer that is caused by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid that causes inflammation, dimpling and pitting of the skin.

4. CHANGES IN LYMPHATIC GANGLES

The lymph nodes filter the fluid and capture harmful cells that include viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells.

If a cancer cell leaves the breast it can go to the lymph nodes of the armpit or the clavicle, therefore inflammation can be noticed in that area.

5. PAIN IN THE BREAST OR NIPPLE

Breast cancer is usually painless, however, it is necessary to be aware of changes in sensitivity, pain or discomfort in this area.

6. NIPPLE RETRACTION OR INVERSION

Breast cancer can cause damage or changes behind the nipple and that may cause it to retract or reverse.

There are many symptoms that can indicate something drastically wrong with a person, but they usually start at minor niggles that most people would ignore.

Because many of cancer's symptoms could be indicative of other diseases, it's easy to dismiss them. The trick is to know the body, and know when something strange or unusual is happening to it.
