Study Finds “One in Six” Breast Cancer Patients “Have Symptoms Other Than Lumps”

NBC Nightly News (11/29, story 8, 2:00, Holt) reported on a study finding that among breast cancer patients, “one in six patients have symptoms other than lumps which can be more difficult to identify.” NBC (Dahlgren) described the case of Beth Laflor, a nurse who works as a lactation consultant, who noticed “changes to the shape of her breast” but received a negative mammogram. She sought a second opinion and “more imaging showed stage three breast cancer, beneath dense breast tissue.” Women are advised to be aware of “changes to the nipple, armpit, any pain, and changes to the skin or shape.”
