Recognizing a Breast Cancer Emergency

Call your health care provider about your breast cancer if you have:

  • A temperature greater than 100.4 F. If you experience any fever and chills, notify your doctor immediately. If you are unable to contact your regular health care provider, go to the emergency room.
  • If you notice in your mouth new sores, patches, swollen tongue, or bleeding gums
  • If you experience a dry, burning, scratchy, or "swollen" throat
  • A cough that is new or persistent and produces mucus
  • Changes in bladder function, including increased frequency or urgency to go, burning during urination, or blood in your urine
  • Changes in gastrointestinal function, including heart burn; nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea that lasts longer than two or three days; or blood in stools
