3. Any change in the breasts
What it means: the first signs of breast cancer can be very hard to notice. When it comes to pain in the breasts and the lymph nodes, it can already be too late.
How to recognize there’s a problem: don’t underestimate the effectiveness of simply observing yourself on your own — this can help you to notice breast cancer at an early stage. Watch out for any changes: red or wrinkled skin, lumps and so on. As for experiencing pain in the breasts from time to time (especially before a period), this is actually pretty normal, and it generally indicates fluctations in hormone levels.
