Every year on the third Friday in October, NATIONAL MAMMOGRAPHY DAY joins in National BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!
This day serves as a reminder to all women that the best defense is early detection. A #Mammogram can often detect a problem before there is any outward physical sign.
CIMA Medical Center in Miami Springs shares some of their best tips on how to recognize and identify early signs and symptoms of Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
Unlike more common types of breast cancer, this type generally doesn’t show up as a lump. The disease grows as nests or sheets under the skin.
Symptoms of Inflammatory Breast Cancer may include:
- Pain in the breast.
- Skin changes in the breast area. You may find pink or reddened areas often with the texture and thickness of an orange.
- A bruise on the breast that doesn’t go away.
- Sudden swelling of the breast.
- Itching of the breast.
- Nipple changes or discharge.
- Swelling of the lymph nodes under the arm or in the neck.
These changes often happen quickly, over a period of weeks.
If you have swelling or redness on your breast that doesn’t go away and doesn’t get better with antibiotics after a week, your doctor may suspect Inflammatory Breast Cancer. An ultrasound and other imaging tests will give a more detailed look at your breast.
