Why the nipples can be indicators of early changes within the breast!
Lactating (milk) ducts are easily blocked by pressure when we sleep. As we lay on our side the flow of these tubes can be restricted which can be felt in the morning in the nipple.
Check your nipples everyday and note any differences between them.They should both feel similar, soft and pliable. If they are swollen they should revert back to normal fairly quickly. If they do not, it could mean there is a possible pressure build up further up in the milk ducts or even armpit.
Signs of breast cancer indicate looking for changes to your nipple. DON`T wait to see any signs, check everyday to make sure there is no pressure within tissues.
More information about the nipple!
Symptoms of breast cancer can often be seen first by changes of the nipple and areola. Not all women have the same symptoms. Some people do not have any signs or symptoms at all. A person may find out they have breast cancer after a routine mammogram.
Warning signs can be:
Changes in the nipple are not necessarily symptoms or signs of breast cancer. Other conditions of the nipple can mimic the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
One in three women with breast cancer detected by a mammogram is treated unnecessarily, because screening tests found tumors that are so slow-growing that they’re essentially harmless, according to a Danish study published January 9th 2017 in Annals of Internal Medicine, which has renewed debate over the value of early detection.
"The study raises the uncomfortable possibility that some women who believe their lives were saved by mammograms were actually harmed by cancer screenings that led to surgery, radiation and even chemotherapy that they didn’t need," said Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, who wrote an accompanying editorial but was not involved in the study. "The debate about overdiagnosis illustrates the limits of medical technology. Although researchers can estimate the statistical rate of overdiagnosis, doctors treating actual patients can’t definitively tell which breast tumours need treatment and which might be safely ignored." Brawley said. "So doctors tend to err on the side of caution and treat all breast cancers with surgery and, in many cases, with radiation and chemotherapy".
An estimated 253,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in U.S. women this year, with nearly 41,000 deaths, according to the American Cancer Society. An additional 63,000 women will be diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ, also known as DCIS, which has some, but not all, of the typical traits of cancer. Although DCIS cells have changed to appear malignant under the microscope, they haven’t invaded surrounding tissue.
The American Cancer Society defines DCIS as the earliest stage of breast cancer, and women with the condition typically undergo the same treatment given to women with early invasive cancers. Although DCIS isn’t life-threatening, doctors recommend treating it to prevent it from becoming invasive.
