Patient Comments: Breast Cancer - Symptoms

What symptoms of breast cancer did you have before you were diagnosed?

Comment from: Beermaid1, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 14

I started noticing a lump that kept popping up and down on the side of my neck. It never was painful but it started getting bigger and staying up longer. I was feeling very tired and fatigued and finally a doctor listened to my symptoms and did a CT. Then I got a PET scan and the next thing I know I get the call that I have breast cancer and it has spread to my lymph nodes and possibly my liver. People, just know if you feel like something is wrong, don"t give up and keep telling and searching for the right doctor that will listen to you and find out what is going on before it's too late!

I had no symptoms – in fact, my doctor could not feel anything when she examined me after I got "the letter." I had another mammogram, some kind of ultrasound, and an MRI before they could really see it. It was an aggressive cancer, so it shows the importance of early detection. I tell my female loved ones to make sure they get a mammogram every year, no excuses!

I started getting lumps everywhere in one of my breasts. Now I can't walk and I don't know what to do.
