Breast Cancer



Awareness about the risk factors and any warning signs is crucial for early diagnosis. Please see your doctor urgently if you notice any of the following.

  • Breast lump that persists or is a new development
  • Breast pain or tenderness (in around 15% of cases)
  • A change in the size, shape or contour of the breast
  • An area that is distinctly different from any other area
  • A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm
  • A change in the feel or appearance of the skin on the breast or nipple (dimpled, puckered, scaly or inflamed)
  • Nipple inversion, rash or bloody or clear fluid discharge from the nipples
  • Redness of the skin on the breast or nipple
  • Swelling of the upper arm or in the armpit

Early diagnosis means that complete treatment may be possible.


Breast cancer is a disease in which cells in the breast grow out of control. The kind of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer. Breast cancer can begin in different parts of the breast. A breast is made up of three main parts: lobules, ducts, and connective tissue.
