An early cancer diagnosis raises the chances for a successful treatment. Most women with breast cancer undergo some type of surgery, which is often needed to remove a breast tumor. The main options are breast-conserving surgery and mastectomy. Also, sentinel lymph node biopsy and axillary lymph node dissection are used to check the lymph nodes under the arm for cancer spread.
Signs of breast cancer include a lump in or near the breast or in the underarm area, changes in the size or shape of the breast, a nipple turned inward into the breast, fluid (bloody) from the nipple, swollen skin on the breast, nipple, or areola.
Tests used to detect and diagnose breast cancer:
- Physical exam and history
- Clinical breast exam (CBE)
- MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
- Blood chemistry studies
