When to Seek Medical Care
Breast cancer develops over months or years. Once it is identified, however, a certain sense of urgency is felt about the treatment, because breast cancer is much more difficult to treat as it spreads. You should see your health-care provider if you experience any of the following:
Redness or swelling in the breast may suggest an infection of the breast.
If an abnormality is found on your mammogram, you should see your health-care provider right away to make a plan for further evaluation.
