Q:

Is there any possibility for a breast feeding mom to get affected by breast cancer? I could see a vein which is nicely visible on my left breast and on the same breast there are 2 to 3 lumps near nipple area . I'm worried whether that could be a sign of breast cancer cos I gone through below image. Need clarification from experts. Thanks in advance!



Breast feeding offers a degree of protection against breast cancer not total protection. It is advisable to continue doing breast self examination every month as well as having the required tests as per your age.
