  • That doesn't really seem like an indication of breast cancer. If she's worried then go see a doc. My breasts get that way during my period so maybe that's it.

  • Might be near your period time. Your period symtoms can change suddenly, they dont always stay the same. I just recenlty started getting sholder aches before and after my period. Thats new. But my face always breaks out i pimples during my period. That is not new. You should schedule a breast exam just to be sure and tell your doctor about your boobs hurting and stuff. Can never be too sure.

  • How does one what? Know?

    She'd find a lump during a breast self exam. Or something would be detected in a mammogram.

    HEAVINESS is not a symptom.

  • The woman would feel a lump in her breasts or have an unexplained rash. Heaviness of breasts is not a symptom of breast cancer. It could be that she is close to her period or she gained weight. Or she is pregnant.
