Im 20 years old and have no previous history of breast cancer in my family. However, I have regularly had breast pains and a few years ago I had dry skin on my nipples. Most recently I keep getting a pain, especially when i touch the side of my right breast. It feels sore and a little weird as if i have a pulled muscle. However, it reoccurs and doesnt appear to be this. Could this be cancer?

Could this be cancer?As per your sounds and symptoms, I think that you have to report this symptoms to your doctor immediately which you still suffering. Generally a normal symptoms of breast cancer are changes color and unusual things on nipple , pain in the nipple while you touch , changes in Breast augmentation.

  • In my opinion breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths amongst women (after lung cancer), responsible for 12,000 deaths a year in the UK. In the USA there are nearly 40,000 breast cancer deaths a year, 5,000 in Canada and 2,600 in Australia.
