What is the symptoms for breast cancer as my wife complain from pain in breast and feel that they are heavy?
Many or none. Proper screening with self breast exams looking for new lumps, breast exams by your physician looking for skin or nipple chanes as well as masses or lymph nodes, and mammogram and ultrasound if needed are the best ways to pick up early stage breast cancer before it causes any symptoms. Once advanced it can cause many different symptoms throughout the body.

Go to see her gyne or pmd and have her breast examined. Mammogram and sono would be helpful to eval the breast. Cut down coffee/caffeinated drink. Nsaids and cold compress can help.

If negative, there are some things that can be considered to help alleviate the pain.
