Find Breast Cancer Early

Changes in your breasts - whether you're a man or woman - can be an indicator of breast cancer or other medical issues. It's important to be self-aware of what is normal for your breasts, so you can spot any changes right away. Call your doctor if you notice changes like:

  • A lump
  • Nipple discharge (other than breast milk), especially a bloody discharge
  • Swelling
  • Changes in size or shape
  • Skin irritations such as redness, thickening or dimpling of the skin
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the armpit
  • Nipple problems, such as pain or redness

Discuss with your OB/GYN your schedule for mammography screenings, and if 3D mammography is the best option for you.
