Question by Sarah: Breast Cancer symptoms?
If there are any symptoms for breast cancer what are they? or is it?

The best answer:

Answer by Tarkarri
From your other questions, you are only in your early teens.
As such, there are no real symptoms of breast cancer, because the risk is so small that it isn’t worth mentioning.
Even in your late teens your risk is less than the risk of being struck by lightning.
Breast cancer is a disease of mature breast tissue, not developing breast tissue.
80% of those diagnosed are over 50, it is uncommon under 40 and rare under 30.

Once breasts are fully developed (usually around 20) then changes from the norm such as lumps may indicate breast cancer, but 80% of breast lumps investigated by dr’s are not cancerous.
