Know the Warning Signs

Breast cancer can be detected early but you need to know the warning signs. 

Be on the lookout for changes such as: 

A lump or thickening in or near the breast 

A lump that may feel like a small pea 

A change in the size or shape of your breast 

Nipple discharge 

A change in the skin on the breast or nipple 

Redness on the breast or nipple 

If you notice any of these changes see your provider or doctor.
