Breast Health

Breast cancer can strike anyone, young or old, male or female, from all ethnic backgrounds and walks of life.

The most common sign of breast cancer is a lump or mass. Other common symptoms include breast swelling, skin irritation, the nipple turning inward, nipple discharge (not breast milk), and breast or nipple pain. These signs may be noticed during a breast self-exam, routine clinical breast exam or screening mammogram. If a suspicious-looking area is detected, additional testing will be used to either confirm a breast cancer diagnosis or identify a benign condition.

Breast Cancer is not a disease to be taken lightly. Over the years, medical technology has greatly improved so that physicians can detect earlier if women are at risk or if they have breast cancer.
