Diagnosing symptoms, causes and risk factors
If you have had breast cancer before and develop new symptoms always contact your hospital team or GP. Women with any symptoms of breast cancer should always see their GP.
The exact cause of breast cancer is unknown. But certain things called risk factors can increase a woman’s chances of developing it.
Order or download our free booklet about secondary breast cancer. It covers symptoms, diagnosis, possible treatments, and practical issues.
