Symptoms of cancer can be varied. It depends on type of cancer and which part is affected. It is a very question to reply specifically. Many cancers are hereditary i. E with a strong family history, while many are due to mutations. A healthy lifestyle with healthy diet, no smoking/alcohol and moderate exercise is the key to healthy life but unfortunately many people develop cancers due to other causes too. I hope that helps!

Good news is that you feel no lump. Pain can be due to hormonal changes associated with your menstrual cycle. Also get them tested.

My wife recently had a very bad breast infection in her left breast. At first we were very tensed thinking it might be breast cancer. She was in a lot of pain. The cancer was ruled out after doing sonography and mammography. But we are still worried. My question is what are the causes of such infections and how can these be avoided. Also what are the symptoms for breast cancer?

Was she feeding her baby ? Most common cause of breast infection is breast abcess due to collection of extra milk , reason women are told to extract extra milk and store it in fridge. Other reasons are Diabetes , Bad Hygiene. You have got tested for cancer , get it repeated after 1 year by ultrasound which is equally correct to look for swellings and like mammography does not carry radiation risk.
