    This is a good all around link: http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/understand_bc/symptoms

    What are the symptoms you or the other person is having? My best advice is always if something looks or feels different and is not normal for you... that is the time to be checked by your doctor. Never go on for months worrying about something. It is always best to be checked. Most things are benign and nothing to worry about but if it turns out to be breast cancer, the sooner it is caught, the better off you will be. Take care, Sharon

      I think you are very wise to get as much information about yourself as you can. There can be some genetic components and your doctor may advise you to have some specific testing done to see if you have the known genes that can make your chances...

      I think you are very wise to get as much information about yourself as you can. There can be some genetic components and your doctor may advise you to have some specific testing done to see if you have the known genes that can make your chances of developing breast cancer higher. I am not happy to see your mom has cancer but happy to see her disease was found in an early stage. My symptoms for breast cancer was an inverted nipple many months before I found a lump. I was successfully treated 5 years ago and remain healthy and cancer free. Your mom will be ok. Give her a hug from all of her "pink sisters" Take care, Sharon

    I had no symptoms and the cancer was found on my annual mammogram. The dr said it was really deep so no one could feel it. Cancer free now!

    I felt 100% fine other than a lump found on an MRI, nothing on the mammogram

    I never felt a lump, but I had a dimple that appeared on my right breast. I also had cancer in my left breast that was found by my annual mammo. No lump there either.

    I had shooting pains down my right arm and ended up feeling a lump. Within a short amount of time the lump was bulging out of my breast.

    Sheena, my cancer was found in an annual mammogram in August, 2011. It was initially spotted as micro calcifications. After surgical biopsy the cancer was found. My cancer was 3 millimeters, very tiny and very early. My medical oncologist told me it would have been about two more years before it would have been felt in a breast exam.

    I never had a lump. It manifested itself as a bruise about the size of a fifty cent piece.
