Breasts can reveal many health problems and disorders that occur in the female body.
Therefore, these 12 changes must not be ignored:
- Sudden breast enlargement
-This happens due to gaining weight. Every extra pound directly affects the breast enlargement.
– It is a PMS or a reaction to a new type of contraceptive. The last option is that you may be pregnant.
- Sudden breast reduction
– It may mean that you have lost weight. Breasts are full of fat, and with losing weight they become smaller.
– It can happen due to ovulation or hormone changes.
- One breast is larger than the other
– A common occurrence in any woman, but especially during PMS.
– It can be a symptom of breast cancer. Any abnormal changes and changes in the breast shape is a sign that you must visit a doctor.
- Skin irritation under the breasts
– Allergic reaction to fabric, fabric color or bra wires.
– Can indicate skin inflammation, which is common in women with large breasts. Rubbing combined with sweat causes irritation.
- Lumps under the nipple
– This is a natural change. The breast function is to produce milk and the rather small lumps are glands’ endings. During the menstrual cycle they can become quite noticeable.
- One bigger lump on the nipple
– Can be a cyst. Cysts are usually not dangerous, but you must go on regular checkups.
– Can be a sign of tumor. Changes inside the breast, especially those that are visible are sign that you should visit a gynecologist immediately.
- Hair on the nipples
– It may be a reaction to certain cosmetics or drugs which contain male hormones.
– Can be a sign of polycystic ovary syndrome. Other symptoms which occur are acne and irregular menstruation.
- Itching nipples
– Indicates allergic reaction to shower gel or to some fabric. Always wash the new bras before wearing them to prevent allergic reaction.
– May be the sign of menstruation. Sometimes hormonal changes lead to itching
– May be a sign of cancer. Although it is rare, combined with secretion can be alarming.
- White secretion from the nipple
– It can be caused by physical stimulation, unrelated to pregnancy.
– It could be a reaction to some medication. It is not dangerous, but can be linked with side effects that should be put under control.
- Red discharge from the nipple
– Indicates a benign tumor that may occur in the milk ducts of the breast. Certainly you need advice.
- A lump on the breast tissue
– It means dilated milk ducts, and often occurs because of changes before menstruation or stress.
– May be a sign of cyst or tumor. If the changes become more visible you must visit a doctor.
Big lump in any part of the breast
– May be a sign of cyst. If the lump is rounded and you feel its movements when you press it, it is possible that it is a benign cyst. It is usually about 1 centimeter large.
– It may be a sign of breast cancer. Therefore this change should not be ignored. If under the fingers you feel a lump that does not change and move, visit a doctor as soon as possible.
