How Do You Detect Breast Cancer? Pay Attention to These 12 Symptoms

Today, the 19th of October, is recognised worldwide as Breast Cancer Awareness Day – the standout moment of the month that every year is dedicated to the fight against this illness. And here at Zankyou, we knew it was our duty to not just acknowledge this month, but to keep all of our readers informed and alert.

A fight we’re starting to win

Breast cancer occurs most frequently amongst women, although it is possible for men to develop it too. Every year, more than 55,000 people are diagnosed with the illness – that’s one person every ten minutes. However, although breast cancer diagnoses are slowly rising, its mortality rate is thankfully falling much faster. And this isn’t just a stroke of luck – it’s because we’re funding research for prevention and treatment properly, and if we all help out, we can make the number of deaths fall even more quickly.

“It is so important that we pay attention to every and any sign that could be indicating to us that something is wrong. In the fight against cancer, detection in the first stages of the illness are absolutely crucial,” says the health magazine S Moda.

How to detect the symptoms

If you think there is a possibility that you have breast cancer, it is vital that you go to a medical specialist as soon as possible, to determine through the use of tests if you are suffering from the illness, and if unfortunately so, to figure out the stage and concurrent treatment options. However, at Zankyou – with the help of charity organisation KnowYourLemons – we here show you the 12 symptoms that you should bear in mind and check for every day, to make sure you’re in peak health. If you are suffering from any one of these symptoms, then don’t delay: go to your doctor straight away.
