Breast development
During puberty, blood levels of the sexhormone oestrogen rise, causing thedevelopment of sexual organs andsecondary sexual characteristics, such asbreasts and body hair, so thatreproduction becomes possible. Duringthis time girls develop milk-producingglands called lobules at the back of thebreasts. These lobules are connected totiny tubes called ducts that can carrymilk to the nipple. The lobules, ductsand blood vessels are surrounded byfatty tissue and connective tissue calledstroma, attached to the chest wall. Menhave much less fatty tissue in theirbreasts than women but can still beaffected by breast cancer.

Rashes on or around the nipple
Discharge from one or both nipples
Skin texture changes (puckering ordimpling)
Swelling under the armpit or aroundthe collarbone (where the lymphnodes are)
A lump that you feel is different tothe rest of your breast tissue
Continuous pain in one part of thebreast or armpit (not a commonsymptom)If you notice any of these changes, make anappointment to see your GP as soon as youcan but try not to worry as most changesdo not turn out to be breast cancer.

If the cancer cells develop in the ducts of thebreast, the cancer is called ductalcarcinoma in situ (DCIS).
