Whenever one thinks of breast cancer, it is always imagined to be a lump in the breast that happens to women. However, there are many other types of breast cancer, some that we are aware of and others that we may not have ever heard before.

In this article, we will discuss 5 types of breast cancer that have not been spoken about enough. They happen to people around the world and have specific symptoms that you can look out for, in case you or someone you know mentions it.

1. Phyllodes Tumor

As the name suggests, this is a tumor but it accounts for less than 1% of breast neoplasms. It can be one or many tumors that are extremely fast growing in the connective tissues of the breast. It is extremely rare, generally occurs in adult women and the tumor can be felt in the breast.

2. Angiosarcoma

This is another very uncommon type of cancer that starts in the inner lining of the blood vessels and the lymph vessels. It can happen anywhere in the body but it is mostly in the breast, skin, liver or spleen.

3. Inflammatory Breast Cancer

This breast cancer is very aggressive even though it is rare. The cancer cells start to obstruct the lymph nodes which are near the breasts, stopping those vessels from draining properly. It is a cancer that progresses quickly and while there is no tumor, the breasts become red, swollen and warm.

4. Paget Disease of the Nipple

This type of breast cancer starts in the ducts of the nipple and then continues to spread in the skin and areola around. The skin of the nipple has something similar to eczema and is usually the first indication.

5. Male Breast Cancer

While breast cancer is mostly associated with women, men can have it too - albeit rarely. The symptoms of breast cancer in men are the same as those in women.

While these are unusual and are not seen in as many people, it is important to be aware of them. If you feel that you have seen these symptoms in yourself or heard someone mention them, it is advised to see the best breast cancer doctor in Pune, or your city. The earlier the detection, the better the chances of being cured.

Remember to reach out to people and stay positive.
