Color?: Flesh color. If it gets to involve the skin it may look red or inflamed but normally would be a palpable lump under normal looking skin.

White, pink, purple.: .. Or even black. Usually, they are white, but you can't see the color until they are removed. Normally, breast cancer lumps after felt. Suspicious lumps are hard, fixed, hard to tell where the edges are and are often painless. Suspicious lumps should be brought to your doctor's attention for further evaluation. The best cure is removal after early detection. This is even more important for men.
