Symptoms of Breast Cancer:
Symptoms to watch out for are:
Any breast cancer patient experiences a symptom of a tumor or cancer that spreads to the lymph nodes. Cancer may begin as a single mole or a cluster of moles.
At this point, the tumor is called “stage I” and has a few underlying problems associated with it, such as poor lymphatic circulation or a poor immune system.
As the tumor grows, it adds to the number of cancer cells in the body, and cancer spreads from the lymph nodes to nearby tissues, organs, and even the skin. In the US, stage I is usually diagnosed when the tumor has spread to the lymph nodes, tendons, or other body tissues.
Stage IIA and IIB involve a cancer cell that has spread to other parts of the body, usually the lymph nodes, but sometimes to the skin or other organs.
Stage IIIA and IIIB involve an increase in the cancer cell’s ability to spread to other areas and sometimes involve a tumor.
Stage IVA involves an increase in the cancer cell’s ability to spread to the lymph nodes and tendons and can include symptoms of cancer that have spread to other parts of the body, such as the liver or lungs.
Finally, stage IVB includes cancer that has spread beyond the lymph nodes and has spread to the skin or other tissues. If you have any of these symptoms, you should contact your physician immediately.
The tumor that causes breast cancer can grow very slowly or rapidly. A doctor can determine the tumor stage based on how much cancer has grown and whether or not it shows signs of cancerous growth.
This depends on various factors, including the type and size of the tumor, its location, and its growth. The faster it grows, the more likely it will come back. However, because some cancers spread more slowly than others, they are less likely to be fatal unless the stage is advanced.
