WHAT TO LOOK FOR?

 
  • Nipple direction: any change in direction of a nipple - turning inwards or at an unusual angle.
  • Nipple secretions: bleeding or weeping.
  • Changes in the dark skin surrounding the nipple (areola): puckering or swelling.
  • Lumps: most lumps are harmless, but new ones or old ones which increase in size should be checked by your doctor.
  • Thickened tissue: a sudden change in size or shape of thick tissue often found in the upper and underneath areas of heavy breasts.
  • Bulge on the surface of the breast.
  • “Orange peel” skin: unusually enlarged pores anywhere on the breast may be an indication that a tumour is blocking the channels which carry lymph fluid.
  • Dimples.
  • Swelling: of the upper arm, or in the armpit, or just above the breast.
