Breast cancer can be a very dangerous disease as the worst outcome might lead to the end of your life. However, if you receive treatment for it at an early stage, you definitely have a higher chance of surviving as well as receiving a complete cure to it too.Contracting breast cancer does not necessary means "the end". If you look at it at a different angle, it is "the beginning" of you learning how to fight for your life and finding hope.Since breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancers being contracted by people in the world, it is better to have a deeper understand of such cancer and the its warning signs.What are the warning signs of breast cancer?* Size or shape change of the breast.* A lump or thickening in the breast. (Possible areas include area surrounding the breast or the underarm.)* Breast feels unusually warm to the touch.* Retraction of nipple. (Nipple turned inwards or sunken into the breast.)* Nipple's shape becomes irregular.* Rash on the nipple or areola.* Discharge from the nipple. (Either bloody or fluid.)* Dimpling of the skin on breast. (The skin looks like the skin of an orange.)* Breast looks red, scaly or swollen.* Breast feeling pain.If any of the symptoms occurred to you and you feel uneasy about it, please consult a doctor as soon as possible. Remember that finding out that you have cancer at an earlier stage is much better than finding it out at a more advanced stage.Even if you had been diagnosed by the doctor later that this is not cancer, it will be much better than worrying about it for days before finally deciding to tell someone about it.However, please do not take this matter lightly. Always be on a lookout for the changes of your breast, especially the nipples. If the nipple discharges either fluid or blood, or there is a retraction of the nipples, these might be potential signs of cancer.The symptoms for breast cancer might not come that early the moment you contracted the disease, which is why it is advisable for you to do body check-ups regularly, especially for older women as they had a higher chance of contracting such cancer.
