WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BREAST CANCER


Breast cancer
  Breast cancer is a very serious ailment that has claimed the lives of many females. It is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. It is fairly common in women, and is always dangerous. Successful treatment depends on spotting the


first sign of possible cancer and getting medical care as soon as possible. Surgery is often necessary in such cases.


Signs of breast cancer:
Abnormal breast dents
"The breast may have an abnormal dent or dimple - or
many tiny pits like the skin of an orange."
     1. You may notice a lump, usually in one side of the breast.
     2. The lump grows slowly.
    3.  The breast may have an abnormal dent or dimple – or many tiny pits like the skin of an orange.
    4. Often there are large but painless lymph nodes in the armpit.
    5.  At first, it usually does not hurt or get hot. But, later it may hurt.



Self-examination of the breasts

Every girl or lady should learn how to examine her own breasts for possible signs of cancer at any time. She should do it at least once a month, preferably on the 10th day after her menstrual period started.
This is what you can do…
    1.  Look at your breasts carefully for any new difference between the two in size or shape. Try to notice any of the signs stated above.

    2. While lying with a pillow or folded blanket under your back, feel your breasts with the flat of your fingers. Press your breast and roll it beneath your finger tips. Start near the nipple; go around the breast and up to the armpit.

    3. Then, squeeze your nipples and check whether blood or any discharge comes out of it.

If you find a lump or any other abnormal sign, get medical advice as soon as possible. The good thing is that many lumps are not cancer! But it is important to find out early.
