3 Signs And symptoms of Breast Cancer

According to Healthline, Breast cancer is a particularly lethal form of cancer that disproportionately affects women. It develops when breast tissues and cells undergo a series of unsettling alterations brought on by the fast growth of aberrant, malignant cells. Complications from the ailment can be fatal for a woman if she doesn't get treatment, but if she does, she has a far better chance of surviving.

In what ways could your body show symptoms?

1. Lymph nodes are a part of the immune system, and when the body is fighting off an infection or other serious condition, the lymph nodes in the armpit expand. Swellings in the armpit are the first symptom a woman notices if she has breast cancer or is at risk for acquiring it. Also, these lymph nodes may be painful and rubbery. Don't dismiss it, especially if other breast symptoms have recently appeared.

2. Armpit redness and the development of red rashes. Red, flaky rashes near the breasts are a common symptom. If you see these rashes and other changes, including lumps in your breasts or underarms, you should make an appointment with your doctor to find out what's wrong.

3. skin wounds or ulcers may start healing on their own for no apparent reason. Because of the fatal and upsetting nature of breast cancer, many other things besides the breasts themselves may go wrong or change when it first appears. Keep an eye out for these symptoms, and if you see any changes in your breasts, it's probably a good idea to get a mammogram.
