It has been said that breast cancer can recur at any time. A lot of recurrencs happen within the first 5 years. Sometimes the cancer comes back exactly or right near the spot you had the cancer or it may come back in a completely different spot. The article says that the most common recurrence spots that recur in different areas of the body are the lymph nodes, the bones, the liver and the lungs. When women beat their cancer they often forget to keep checking up on themselves because of the fact that it can recur.
The signs women should look for is lumping or thickening near the breast or underarm, a difference in size, shape and color of the breast, and bloody or clear discharge from the nipples. Women should continue mammograms, image testing and breast exams from your doctor. women should have these things done atleast every 3 to 4 months. The larger your tumor was the more likely your chances of the cancer reccuring again is.
