Q: Does breast cancer hurt? A: At the early stages of breast cancer, most patients can hardly feel the pain. Only after the cancer develops to a certain stage, the disease begins to hurt. Based on the existing studies, a tiny clump or lump formed by cancer cells or a small breast tumor does not make patients feel the pain. It is likely to feel the pain when the tumor is no less than 2 centimeters in diameter. Only 5%-15% of patients who were newly diagnosed with breast cancer feel the pain. Besides, only 7% of women started to talk to a doctor due to breast pain. Pain caused by breast cancer usually hurts on the same spot, but many patients feel no pain at all. Therefore, to establish the awareness is quite important way to prevent and treat the disease.   Keywords: does breast cancer hurt; do breast cancer lumps hurt; does breast cancer lump hurt     Related FAQs:
