Symptoms of Breast Cancer which has spread?

13 Sep 2017 09:41

Hi,

   I am aware of the main signs of breast cancer, due to my Grandmother being diagnosed with terminal as it had spread. Then about a month after, my mother also found out she had it to. I am a Little unsure about if its spread, by following symptoms as i cant feel a lump myself. Bu do have these signs:

Breasts have decreased & appear dimpled/puckered

Nipples are extremely rough and sore

Weight loss & loss of appetite

Dimpled/puckered face

Some marks which dont heal as normal-one of them on my arm took over 6 weeks

Had a number of Seizures which i havent before

 

Thank you

Hello TJWDMC2000 and thank you for your post.

I am sorry to learn that your mother and grandmother have breast cancer, and that you are concerned about symptoms that you have.

Unfortunately I cannot add very much more to what Rileyroo has said. It would really be advisable for you to discuss your symptoms with your doctor (GP) especially if you are having seizures.

Your GP is able to do a physical examination and will take into consideration your family history of breast cancer. They will advise you if further tests are needed or if you need a referral to a specialist breast or other relevant clinic.

I am sorry that I cannot be more specific but hope that you can make an appointment with your GP soon. I also hope that things go well for your grandmother and mother.

With kind regards,

Mary
