Do you know the 12 Signs of Breast Cancer?
While a lump is the most common sign of breast cancer, some symptoms can be seen rather than felt. Either way, a mammogram can detect a lump long before it can be felt. Know yourself and keep your regular mammogram appointments.

Do you know what a cancerous lump feels like?
Think of a self-exam as a casual way to know what is normal for you. Best time to check is at the end of your period when things are most normal. A cancerous lump feels different from a normal lump: it's often hard and immovable and can be any shape or size (like a lump or a thick mass).
Do you know your screening and testing options?
Whether you are investigating a symptom or going for routine screening it's good to know what to expect. If something concerns you and don't have a clear answer, the only way to verify cancer is to see the cells, such as through a biopsy.
Are you normal or high risk?
Knowing this helps you understand how often you need to be screened.
