Assessment and management of breast symptoms by a breast cancer specialist
Distressing symptoms in the breast are most associated with benign conditions, while breast cancer remains asymptomatic for long after its onset. On the contrary, any breast symptom usually associated with benign conditions can be seen in breast cancers. So, all symptoms in the breast deserve a diligent assessment and management by a breast cancer specialist. We will provide you with the most accurate information about your symptoms, guiding you through the stages of its control.
