How to Diagnose Breast Cancer Recurrence through its First Signs?

Q:

How to diagnose breast cancer recurrence through its first signs?

A:

The possible first signs of breast cancer are the microcalcifications in the postoperative scar area. Certain microcalcifications can turn to spiculated lesions, which may suggest breast cancer recurrence according to X-ray mammography. However, about 30% of such cases finally turn out to be benign based on the test through intraoperative biopsy. Usually, ultrasound is used with mammography to diagnose the local recurrence of breast cancer.

The symptoms of a breast cancer recurrence is quite similar to those of the first breast cancer if it occurs in the very same place.
