Sanford Health Q&A: Dr. Heather Martin
What can I do to protect myself against breast cancer?
Breast cancer is most successfully treated when caught in the early stages. If you notice a lump, skin discoloration or changes, discharge from a nipple, or experience ongoing breast pain, call your primary care doctor immediately. Four out of five biopsied breast lumps are ruled noncancerous, so don't panic if you find one. But do follow up with your doctor.
