Does stage 1 breast cancer have symptoms?

Swelling or redness of the breasts. You can help reduce your risk of cancer by making healthy choices, such as eating well, staying active, and not smoking. All stages of breast cancer have a risk that the cancer will return as metastatic or spread to other areas of the body. The American Cancer Society offers programs and services to help you during and after cancer treatment.

These therapies can help reduce the size of the tumor and allow the surgeon to more easily remove it while the breast is preserved. Approximately 5% to 10% of breast cancers are due to a genetic abnormality inherited from the mother or father. We follow the guidelines set by the American College of Radiology and the American Society of Breast Surgeons and recommend that women age 40 and older with an average risk get annual mammograms. Early detection of breast cancer with a mammogram means that treatment can start sooner, most of the time before the disease has spread.

There are several different types and stages of breast cancer, each of which is characterized by the location of the cancer cells and the size of the tumor. Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that develops from the uncontrolled growth of abnormal breast cells. However, there are certain changes in the breast that may indicate breast cancer in both men and women. Stage 1 breast cancer is a cancer that is still small and located in the breast that has not spread to the lymph nodes, or a small area of the cancer has spread to the sentinel lymph node (the first lymph node to which cancer is likely to spread).

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), early-stage breast cancer can describe several stages from 0 to 3A. Cribriform breast cancer is a low-grade, slow-growing breast cancer that may be present with other forms of breast cancer. Knowing the stage can help you and your doctor determine possible outcomes, treatment options, and find clinical trials that may be appropriate. The risk of breast cancer increases if your mother, sister, or daughter (first-degree relative) has had breast cancer, especially if this family member was premenopausal at the time the cancer was diagnosed.
