Early detection tips from Wellington Regional 

Pay attention to these breast cancer warning signs:

  • A lump or thickening in the breast or under the arm
  • A change in the size or shape of the breast
  • Discharge from the nipple
  • A change in the color or feel of the skin of the breast or nipple area (such as dimpling, puckering or scaliness)

Just 10 minutes a month could save your life. When breast cancer is found and treated early before it has spread beyond the breast, the 5-year survival rate can be as high as 90 percent. A mammogram can detect a lump up to two years before it can be felt. If breast cancer is detected early, most cases can be treated successfully.

Let's take a total approach in detecting breast cancer, including:

  • Regular breast self-examination
  • Annual screening mammogram beginning at age 40. Women with higher than average risk for breast cancer should seek expert medical advice about beginning screening before age 40
  • Annual clinical breast exams
  • Treatment and support: knowing your options and getting the right help once breast cancer is diagnosed
