In early breast cancer, patients usually do not have symptoms. MedlinePlus noted that as the cancer gets larger, symptoms such as a breast lump, fluid from the nipple, or change of the breast or nipple can develop.

In advanced breast cancer, patients can experience weight loss, skin ulcers, bone pain, swelling of the arm next to the affected breast, and breast discomfort.

Endometrial Cancer

In the United States, an estimated 46,470 women will develop endometrial cancer in 2011, stated the National Cancer Institute. A common type of uterine cancer, endometrial cancer starts in the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus. MedlinePlus noted that the majority of endometrial cancer cases begin between ages 60 and 70.

Patients with endometrial cancer who have not gone through menopause can have bleeding between their normal periods, while patients who have gone through menopause can have vaginal bleeding or spotting.
