Symptoms

While these are common symptoms of breast cancer, their presence does not mean that you have breast cancer. If you experience any of these symptoms, talk with your healthcare provider.

  • Lump or mass in your breast
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the armpit
  • Changes in breast size, shape, skin texture or color
  • Skin redness or “scaliness”
  • Dimpling or puckering
  • Nipple changes or discharge
  • Nipple pulling to one side or a change in direction
