    It's very hard to define symptoms for breast cancer. Everyone is different. Some women do not have any noticeable symptoms. Others notice a lump or a discharge from the nipple. The safest course is to have your yearly exames, Know your own body, and know your family history. If you have concerns, discuss them with your doctor right away.

      Yes. Breast cancer knows no age. I was 16 when i found my tumor. Research has found that genetics are not a solid risk factor for breast cancer, I was the first in my family. If your worried see a doctor and ask to have an ultrasound.

    Although its been said that if you feel a pain in your breast, then it isn't Breast Cancer. Well I kept feeling a dull ache in my breast and I admit that I put off scheduling my mammogram because I had a feeling....it was just a feeling... When I eventually had the mammogram, it came back as needing further testing. So then I had the sonogram. Meanwhile, in the shower one night I felt a good sized lump in my breast that hurt to the touch. It just turned out that me and the sonogram found the lump at the same time. Please, Please, Please, do not ignore a pain in your breast. Don't pay attention to what 'they' say about no pain. Just go and have it checked out. It may be nothing, but then again...

      Are these symptoms common to all women with breast cancer?

      Not what I wanted to hear. The only thing I have that you didn't say was bloody discharge from my nipple. Mammogram tomorrow I am worried.

    I found mine on my yearly mamo exam. Now that I look back I did have some pain in my left breast and some itching. I also had a lump that I could feel after they showed me where it was under my nipple. I also have a lot of severe night sweats and fatigue but am also going through menopause so I really didn

    I had a large lump that was not painful at first. However, after a biopsy it became painful. So I don't think one can say cancerous lumps are or are not painful. I was extremely tired all the time for a year pre- diagnoses and went for tests, etc and there was no reason for this. Now I believe I was tired because my body had been fighting cancer. Other than that I had NO symptoms! I exercised from time -to-time, etc and never knew. If you have a lump have it checked our please!
