Breast Lump, etc.: A new breast lump is the most common ca symptom and warrants physician evaluation. Less common symptoms include nipple discharge (especially clear or bloody, spontaneous, and from one nipple duct), skin dimpling/indentation, breast pain, and, rarely breast swelling and redness with or without a rash.

Variable: Many times- there is no symptom and breast cancer is diagosed through the abnormal mammogram. Symptom/sign can be presented with palpable lump on the breast, bloody nipple discharge, skin eruption around the nipple that does not go away and itch, skin thickness over the breast area. Frequently- lump/s can also present on the arm pit area. Any of these- please see your doctor immediately.

I will add if you see any asymmetry that has changed, dimpling in the skin or nipple retraction. Pain in the breast but most of the time cancer is painless in the breast. Reddened skin or "pau de orange" that it looks like a orange peel where the pores are visible.

Most common symptom?: The most common symptom of breast cancer is no symptoms at all. It is important to perform your screening mammography as prescribed by your physician. The best chance for a cure happens when breast cancer is detected at the earliest stages.
