Mass: Almost always a painless mass, unless found on mammogram. Sometimes thickening "orange peel" change in the skin, new retraction of the nipple, dimpling of the skin, or a rash on the nipple. Any dominant mass needs a physician's office visit.

Oftentimes nothing: Oftentimes, breast cancers are found with routine mammography. By getting yearly mammograms, differences in the breast tissue can be visualized with the mammogram. In some instances, women may feel a new mass in their breast, notice a growing mass in the breast, or potentially have spontaneous bloody nipple discharge. These are only some symptoms; make sure to get breast exam if concerned.
