What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

When breast cancer starts out, it is too small to feel and does not cause signs and symptoms.
As it grows, however, breast cancer can cause changes in how the breast looks or feels.

Symptoms may include—

New lump in the breast or underarm (armpit).
Thickening or swelling of part of the breast.
Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.
Redness or flaky skin in the nipple area or the breast.
Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.
Nipple discharge other than breast milk, including blood.
Any change in the size or the shape of the breast.
Pain in any area of the breast.

Last month, World Of Warcraft fans successfully petitioned Blizzard to add a tribute to fellow WoW player Robin Williams to the game. Now members of Wowhead have discovered several apparent tributes to Williams in a beta version of the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion. The first one discovered in-game is this genie, found in an Ever-Burning Lamp on an island near Talador.

Something You Have Always Wanted To Do

The Daily Post provided the following prompt today:

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but never got around to starting (an activity, a hobby, or anything else, really)? Tell us about it — and tell us about what’s keeping you from doing it.

MY RESPONSE: There are many things I would like to do and the biggest obstacle is money. I would love to go to Ireland and Hawaii and stay for a month or so in each location.  I would also like to have a summer home and a winter home.  And lastly, I would love to live somewhere in the country on 100 acres and rescue animals.
