Recurrent breast cancer
- A lump or thickening in the breast, chest wall, or armpit after you have had breast-conserving surgery or a mastectomy. You may notice that the skin of your chest looks or feels different.
- A change in the size or shape of the breast or a dimple or pucker in the skin of the breast.
- Discharge or bleeding from the nipple that occurs without squeezing the nipple.
- A change in the nipple, such as a scaly or crusty look or a nipple that draws inward.
Metastatic breast cancer
Symptoms of metastatic breast cancer will depend on the area affected and how far your breast cancer has spread. For example:
- If your bones are affected, you may have bone pain. And your bones may break more easily.
- If your lungs are affected, you may be short of breath.
- If your liver is affected, you may have swelling in your belly or yellow, itchy skin.
- If cancer spreads to your brain, you may have confusion, changes in your vision, or seizures.
