  • Apart from looking at the sign, the females should also go for breast cancer examinations by health professionals. Anyone is prone to breast cancer as long as you are a female. There are lots of free check-ups that they can go for. It's not about God forbid stuff. Just be on the safer side. Mind you it one of the most common cancer worldwide too.

  • The common signs to identify possible breast cancer include - lumps in the breast, change in the shape/size/appearance of the breast, change in the texture of the skin around the breast, inverted nipples, redness or soreness of the breast. The signs of breast cancer can be identified with a simple self-breast examination that one can conduct on their own. Also, certain screenings can also be helpful in identifying possible signs of breast cancer.

  • I believe there is one simple way to prevent breast cancer and this is by 'massaging' . Females can always do the check out themselves by massaging the breasts and feeling if there's any lump. If there is, a medical check up is advised.

    Redness or pitting of the skin over the breast like orange skin, peeling, scaling of the pigmente area of skin surrounding the areola (nipple) or even the entire breas are signs of breast cancer also.

  • I have little knowledge about the symptoms of breast cancer. However, from what I have read, I think incessant discharge of breast milk from a no nursing mother is a strong indicator of cancer of the breast.

  • Its not enough to talk about the symptoms. What about the prevention? Ask your doctor about breast cancer screening. Discuss with your doctor when to begin breast cancer screening exams and tests, such as clinical breast exams and mammograms.

  • In addition to what you just said, I believe that breast cancer is a serious disease but if discovered earlier  can be treated. So that's why I believe that ladies should always check their breast for lump. If a lump is found in the breast at early stage, it can be removed otherwise it can enlarge and lead to breast cancer. 

    God protect our ladies from cancer

  • Breast cancer can occur in women and rarely in men.. Can have no symptoms, but people may experience breast discomfort, inverted nipple, lumps, or nipple discharge. It is a very bad disease that can make ladies loose one of their breast. See the doctor immediately if you see any sign or symptoms

  • The most common symptom of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. A painless, hard mass that has irregular edges is more likely to be cancer, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded. They can even be painful. For this reason, it is important to have any new breast mass, lump, or breast change checked by a health care professional experienced in diagnosing breast diseases.

  • I am kolo baba Mohammed Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. Causes After puberty, a woman's breast consists of fat, connective tissue, and thousands of lobules. These are tiny glands that produce milk for breastfeeding. Tiny tubes, or ducts, carry the milk toward the nipple. Cancer causes the cells to multiply uncontrollably. They do not die at the usual point in their life cycle. This excessive cell growth causes cancer because the tumor uses nutrients and energy and deprives the cells around it. Breast cancer usually starts in the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply them with milk. From there, it can spread to other parts of the body.

    Also not all inverted nipples are symptoms of cancer. Some people have inverted nipples naturally but they become prominent when they're cold or aroused. However if you're cold or aroused and the nipple still remains inverted then there's a problem
