What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

Breast cancer forms in the cells of the breasts and often causes no symptoms. This type of cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in women in the U.S. after skin cancer. Furthermore, breast cancer can develop in men, but the chances are extremely low.

Studies show that the most common symptoms of breast cancer include a new mass or a lump. These growths can be painless, hard, with irregular edges, or tender, soft, and well-rounded. They can cause pain in some cases. Therefore, it is important to have a specialist check any breast change.

Other possible symptoms include:

  • swelling of the breast;
  • skin irritation or dimpling;
  • pain in the breast or nipple;
  • nipple retraction;
  • redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin;
  • nipple discharge that is other than breast milk.

Claire Warner's horrifying yet miraculous discovery

One day, Claire Warner discovered a small dimple under her left breast. It happened to be an extremely rare and sneaky symptom of breast cancer. The woman says she caught the disease exceptionally early and admits she was fortunate to find this subtle sign only "thanks to another post shared by an amazing friend." Claire says she experienced no symptoms at all except for this minuscule dimple.

Such symptom is extremely hard to recognize even during a thorough self-examination. Claire warns others about how cunning breast cancer can be and hopes she can help anyone the way she was helped:

Blink and you'd miss it. If I can help one other person, the way I was helped, then it's been worth showing my soon-to-be-reduced left tit to the world.

Thank you for this noble deed, Claire! We wish you a long, healthy, and happy life!
