Signs and Symptoms of Breast Cancer
Early stages of breast cancer usually have no symptoms. These small tumors may be detected by mammograms. As they enlarge, a swelling or lump in the breast may be noted. Additionally, a vague discomfort in the breast without true pain may occur. Other signs of breast cancer include retraction of the nipple, distorted breast contour, dimpled or pitted skin in the breast, enlarged nodes under the arm (late stages), and bloody discharge from the nipple (rare).
Signs and Symptoms of Larynx Cancer
The hallmark of this disease, especially if it begins on the vocal cords, is hoarseness that does not disappear after resting the voice. There may be a feeling of a lump-in-the-throat. Painful or difficult swallowing can develop and there may be difficult or loud breathing and chronic cough. A hard lump may develop in the neck, which is frequently painless. This may be a bad sign of cancer spreading to the local lymph nodes. As the disease progresses, there may be weight loss.
