Scars On The Breast Form Keloids. Symptoms Of Breast Cancer?
Good night,. I am Aleya. I want to ask about breast cancer. My mother had a left breast injury. But now there are scars like dark brown keloids on the breast. Are those signs of breast cancer? For information, my mother does not want to be consulted and she is the type of person who is quiet so that she never complains if she is sick. Because of this, I have difficulty ascertaining and determining actions. According to the doctor, what should I do?
Good afternoon Aleya, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Breast cancer is a condition when there is one breast tissue that grows abnormally or uncontrollably, so that it damages and endangers the person. There are many types of breast cancer, depending on what tissue is affected. Some are known as angiosarcoma, Paget's disease, phyllodes tumor and many more.
Regarding your question, not all breast cancers can be known from the beginning and not all who have breast cancer have the same symptoms. But in general, symptoms of breast cancer include:
Breast skin flushes for no apparent reason. There are lumps in the breasts that enlarge rapidly. There are lumps that feel hard and are hard to move. Nipples are drawn in. There is swelling in the armpit area. Exfoliation of the breast skin.
But it is not absolutely necessary to experience any of the above symptoms with breast cancer. These symptoms are only useful for patients to increase vigilance which must still be followed again with further examination by a cancer doctor or oncologist. Regarding your mother's case, with the presence of chocolate marks that appear after the part was injured, it is not impossible that it is indeed keloid and not related to cancer. But once again, doctors will not be able to ascertain what the patient experienced if not examined directly. So as we suggest, try to persuade your mother to have a check up, or if she feels fine, at least make an agreement to your mother that if any of the symptoms above finally appear, she should immediately consult her doctor.
Meanwhile, still help him to maintain a healthy lifestyle by avoiding stress, eating healthy food, avoiding cigarette smoke, getting enough sleep, and doing regular exercise according to ability. So, hopefully answering your question.
