Breast Cancer Symptoms

Symptoms of breast cancer may vary from woman to woman. Women should be familiar with their breasts so that they know what feels and looks normal for them. Changes should be promptly reported to a health care provider. Many cancers are found by regular mammography after age 40 – before any symptoms are felt.

Symptoms include:
  • lump or mass in your breast
  • enlarged lymph nodes in the armpit
  • changes in breast size, shape, skin texture or color
  • skin redness
  • dimpling or puckering
  • nipple changes or discharge
  • scaliness
  • nipple pulling to one side or a change in direction

Having any of these symptoms does not mean you have cancer, but if you notice one or more of them for more than two weeks, see your doctor.
