During a long-term study of breast cancer symptoms, doctors have determined that every sixth woman with this diagnosis has not found the “main symptom” – the appearance of a seal in the tissues -. That is, additional examinations were not carried out in a timely manner, since there was no reason to suspect a disease either during an independent examination or when going to a mammologist. Specialists studied the symptoms based on information from 2300 patients. Experts have found that there are many more warning signs. If women did not have seals, then they postponed the visit to the doctor, because they did not believe that the changes could provoke serious health problems.
Breast cancer, like most diseases, can develop in different ways. For this reason, experts spoke about the symptoms of the disease. For example, the shape or size of one of the mammary glands, the appearance of the nipples may change, there is bloody discharge from the nipple or the skin around it is irritated, lymph nodes are enlarged, and seals form. If such problems appear, you should immediately contact a doctor.
