what are the symptoms of breast carcinoma?

Lump in breast: The commonest symptom is a lump in the breast. Other less common symptoms are nipple discharge, rash on the nipple and surrounding skin, pain in the breast, redness and swelling of the skin over the breast, mass in axilla and in some cases the first symptoms are due to metastases in other organs. Most early breast cancers have no symptoms.

None: Breast cancer does not usually cause symptoms. It can be a palpable mess or just an abnormal finding on the mammogram. It depends on the size. Aim is usually not a characteristic finding unless a large mass is palpable.
