Breast Cancer Risks and Symptoms
One of the most common symptoms of breast cancer is feeling a lump in the breast area, with or without pain. Factors that can elevate breast cancer risk include personal or family history of breast cancer, inherited genetic predispositions and elevated lifetime estrogen exposure.
Oftentimes, breast cancer survivors are relieved or excited to be finished with treatment. However, they may feel lost about their future or worried that cancer could come back. City of Hope provides excellent supportive care and long-term follow-up programs to help manage the process of treatment and recovery.
If you have received a breast cancer diagnosis elsewhere, ask for a second opinion from a City of Hope Orange County expert. An accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment plan are essential for the best outcomes.
