Changes to look out for


If you find a lump in your breast then it can be a worry. Often cancerous lumps will feel hard, but can totally vary in shape and size. But it's not just a lump that you should be looking out for. You should also keep an eye out for the following changes:

• Changes in size or shape of your breasts
• Changes in skin texture such as puckering or dimpling (a bit like the skin of an orange)
• If your nipple becomes inverted, changes position or shape
• A lump or thickening of breast tissue, that feels different from the rest of your breast
• Redness or a rash on your skin and/or around your nipple
• Discharge from one or both of your nipples
• Swelling or constant pain in your armpit, around your collarbone or in your breast
