Warning over non-lump breast cancers

Around one in six cases of breast cancer begins with symptoms other than a suspect lump, experts are warning.

Researchers from University College London say women need to be aware of other warning signs - such as nipple changes - so that they get help fast.

The researchers examined the symptoms of 2,300 women who had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer.

They found that women with non-lump symptoms were more likely to put off visiting their doctor.

The researchers are presenting their work at the National Cancer Research Institute conference in Liverpool.

Swellings in the armpit or an infection of the breast tissue should be checked out, they say. So too should nipple changes - rashes, bleeding or discharge - and any sores on the skin of the breasts.

Dr Karen Kennedy, director of the National Cancer Research Institute, said: "This research shows that, all too often, women are delaying going to their doctor with symptoms of breast cancer.

"This could be because people are simply unaware that breast cancer can present in many different ways, not just through the presence of a lump.

"With a disease like breast cancer, it's essential to be diagnosed as early as possible so that a treatment plan can be developed and started."
