Symptoms of breast cancer

The most common symptom of breast cancer is a lump or mass. A cancerous lump is usually painless and hard with uneven edges. However, some cancers are tender, soft and rounded so it’s important to have any changes checked out by your doctor.
Other symptoms include:
  • Swelling of all or part of the breast
  • Skin irritation or dimpling
  • Breast pain
  • Nipple pain or the nipple turning inward
  • Redness, scaliness or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • A nipple discharge other than breast milk
  • A lump in the underarm area
If you have one or more of these symptoms, call your doctor to schedule an appointment.
