1 in 6 women diagnosed with breast cancer have symptoms other than a breast lump, suggests a study.
-A recent study, conducted by University College of London (UK), suggests that about 1 in every 6 women diagnosed with breast cancer had symptoms other than just breast lumps.
-The study evaluated the data of close to 2,300 women diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK.
-Some of the commonly reported symptoms include breast pain, skin abnormalities, nipple abnormalities, ulceration, shape abnormalities and an infected or inflamed breast.
-The study also suggested that unawareness around the other symptoms of breast cancer was among the reasons for delayed detection of the breast cancer cases.
