Sometimes a woman shows signs of declining health but doesn't have a breast lump or pain and nothing shows up on mammograms and scans. This can mean that a tumor started in the breast but has spread to the liver or other organs and is affecting overall health. Pain in the spine, back, or lung, can lead to the discovery of a breast tumor that's pressing on other organs. It's always important to bring any unexplained symptoms to the notice of your doctor, and be proactive in requesting a full range of tests that can help rule out breast cancer.
