Answer by mgillis79
Yes, there are. If you commonly feel lumps in your breasts then chances are you have a tumor, and it could possibly be breast cancer. Make sure to check with your physician.

They are much the same as symptoms in women. Early breast cancer, of course, can have no symptoms at all.

Questions about breast cancer treatment.?

A question asked by Nikki in PA: Questions about breast cancer treatment.?
A friend has been diagnosed with Stage 2 A breast cancer. Using the TNM system, it is classified as T1 N1 M0. She had a lumpectomy 3 weeks ago along with axillary lymph node dissection. The tumor was almost 2cm and there were 3 nodes that tested positive. The doctor is recommending chemo therapy and then radiate to follow that. Has anyone had cancer around this stage that can tell me about their treatment? How bad was the chemo? How long was the chemo? Etc.. Any and all answers appreciated.
So, if someone gets chemo every 3 weeks, they might get it multiple times within that week? Is this intravenous chemo? I’ve read up on something called dense-dose chemo therapy, where you get that every 2 weeks.. I’m really curious.
Also, what is the survival rate for this type of cancer? I know this is all vague details, since every cancer is so different, but I’ve known alot of people that have not survived cancer.. Is this something most people can survive?

My chosen answer:

Answer by Erika
I had breast cancer I just completed my treatment about a month and a half ago, I had a mastsctomy done and they also removed three lymph nodes also tested positive. My chemo treatment was six sessions three days out of the week but every 3 weeks followed by 36 session of radiation. Many people say that chemo is a very bad that you lose wait that you throw up all day that you cant eat, Icant tell you that all that is not true but what i will tell you is that i never went through none of that the only thing that i experienced was the last day of each session i had no flavor in my mouth felt tired but just for one day.I believe the reason is that i never seen chemo with fright i went in there letting the cancer cell that i was there to kill them as dumb as it sounds i would literaly talk to them and tell them YOU DONT BELONG IN MY BODY!! yea I know its dumb but hey it worked for me. I believe in the power of the mind if you believe that chemo will get you sick trust me IT WILL. The radiation you really dont feel anything you just lay there. After about 5 weeks the skin will get dark look at it as a very long day at the beach i do recommend to use alot i mean alot of aloe lotion at least 5 times a day they say three is enough but a little extra wont hurt. Other than that its nothing big. As for me the hardest part from chemo was the hair part but like me always making good out of something bad didnt think much of it. Use this time to play with different looks its fun. Hope I helped a little good luck to your friend everything will be fine. Remember that saying what doesnt kill you makes you stronger.

A question asked by ….: So I’ve asked this before but still unsure of breast cancer symptoms?
When i feel around my left chest i feel somewhat of a bump. Though i’m not sure if that’s just what’s normally inside the breast area. I don’t really want to go see a doctor and have them feel around my breast if i don’t think its that bad or i might not even have it.
My left breast right now hurts a bit just a little maybe a 3 on a scale of 1-10. Im thinking it maybe could be cause i don’t drink enough water so i get a lot of different weak small pain areas?
So how do I know if it’s serious, how long does it take for breast cancer to become severe that you 100% know something is wrong in that area?

I need advice.

How do facebook status campaigns help breast cancer?

Question by …: How do facebook status campaigns help breast cancer?
I mean, I’m aware of breast cancer, just like I’m aware of lots of other types of cancer. I really feel for the families and people who have gone through breast cancer, as I have had many close ones die from cancer. But recently there is the Facebook thing about the weeks and the candy cravings. How does it help?

Most detailed answer:

Answer by ???????
It doesn’t. Just about everyone who’s old enough to know about breast cancer is already aware of it. Writing those stupid status updates does not help in any way. I think people just feel guilty if they don’t do it so that’s why they post it up plus they probably just want to make people wonder if they really are pregnant or not.
