Breast CA Symptoms: Most women diagnosed with breast cancer have no symptoms, having been diagnosed by routine screening mammography. For those with symptoms, the presence of a palpable lump is by far the most common. Other symptoms include skin dimpling, thickening, or redness, nipple inversion, nipple discharge, breat pain, and/or the presence of a lump in the armpit. Best bet for diagnosis: yearly mammograms!
