8 Signs of Breast Cancer
2. Pain In The Breasts
A sharp, stabbing pain in the breast area is not a good indicator. Breast pain (called Mastalgia) is likely to occur and spread to other body parts in case it is invasive in nature. Sharp ache that comes and goes accompanied by an electric sensation in the breasts is because of the cancer itself. If the tumor is present just behind the nipples or milk ducts, then women can experience certain discomfort with the pain. Painful breasts, nonetheless, may not be due to the cancer, but other serious health issues, which may need immediate attention. In fact, in some cases, breast pain can also arise because of hormonal changes in the body.
