What can I experience in case I have breast cancer?

In the majority of cases, the disease develops in complete absence of clinical symptoms. Since it is a mostly asymptomatic disease, it is rendered even more dangerous. Depending on the type of cancer, the patient may experience:

  • Pain, in very advanced stages (in mastitis, or morbus Paget cases)
  • Itching, pain of the nipples, laceration of the nipple, ulcerations, serous or bloody secretions in the specific case of morbus Paget.
