What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

Hello, I had breast cancer 5 years ago it was stage1 and it was DCIS and my last mammo in January was fine. Over the last 3 weeks I have been feeling sensations no real pain or discomfort but very concerned. I have been working out in the sun and heat during this time as well and tired. Does this mean the cancer is back? Is this common after this length of time? Thank you.

Thank you for the query.

The chance that the same cancer is back is low as DCIS is not an invasive cancer. However you are prone to have another breast cancer as you already have had one.
So please do not think if it might be back. Please visit your doctor and have mammography and an ultrasound done.

Hope this helps.
