Breast Cancer Symptoms

Symptoms vary from person to person. Some people may not have any signs or symptoms of breast cancer at all, or may be diagnosed after a routine mammogram.

Possible symptoms of breast cancer include:

  • New lump in the breast or underarm
  • Thickening or swelling of any part of the breast or underarm
  • 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
  • Abnormal dimpling of the breast

If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms and are concerned you are at risk, contact your doctor immediately.
