Watch Out for These 5 Signs
Stage 1 breast cancer is when the disease hasn’t spread yet from its primary location. It’s still confined in the breast area, probably with microscopic tumors that are still forming. Even if it has spread to the nearby lymph nodes, it’s usually in trace amounts (almost pin-sized) and not yet considered dangerous.
Stage 1 breast cancer is considered a very treatable stage since it’s still localized to the patient’s breast or chest area. Treating breast cancer at this stage holds a high chance of eliminating the disease, with patients normally having a 99% long-term survivability rate.
Getting regular mammogram screenings is your best bet to catch breast cancer early on. However, you can look out for symptoms that may indicate you have stage 1 breast cancer:
1. Weird discharge from your nipples
If you aren’t pregnant or haven’t had a baby, seeing a clear or milky discharge should be something to be cautious about. The discharge can be thin or thick and may come in other colors such as red, yellow, and even green. While this doesn’t mean 100% that you have breast cancer, telling your doctor about it wouldn’t hurt.
2. Scaly or pitted skin
Changes in your skin texture near your breast area can be an indicator of early-stage breast cancer. Your skin may feel scaly, extremely dry, and itchy as well
3. Breast or nipple pain
Feeling discomfort, tenderness, and even pain in your nipples or breasts can be due to breast cancer. You should consider this possibility if it starts happening out of the blue.
4. Skin discoloration
Stage 1 breast cancer can cause your skin to become discolored. It can make your breast area a bit red, purple or bluish and looking a bit like it’s bruised.
If you feel that your breast or the area around it is swelling, it can be a sign of breast cancer. Swelling is different from lumps (which are tumors). It may cause you to feel your breast sizes are uneven or some tightness in your breast.
Want to Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer?
Although stage 1 breast cancer is highly treatable, getting rid of it can still cost you a pretty penny. For the uninsured or those who aren’t financially well-off, this is one of the reasons why they choose to delay their treatment even at the risk of their cancer getting worse.
You can easily help provide a solution to their quandary by simply donating any vehicle you no longer need to us here at Breast Cancer Car Donations. We’ll turn your donation into a powerful life-saving tool for the benefit of the destitute breast cancer patients in your area.
We’ll sell your vehicle through an auction and use the proceeds to support the critical services being provided by our breast cancer-focused charity partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations use the funding to provide indigent or low-income breast cancer patients with financial assistance and easy access to top medical centers where they can undergo full treatment, including surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy. Other beneficiaries can get free breast cancer screening, follow-up care as well as cancer prevention and education services.
You will also greatly benefit from your donation. You’ll be entitled to claim the maximum tax deduction after we mail you the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your auctioned-off vehicle.
Also, we’ll be hauling off your unwanted car without charging you a single dime for it.
The best reward you’ll get, however, is the priceless satisfaction you’ll feel for doing a life-saving charitable act.
