Breast lump: There are not many symptoms for early breast cancer, therefore the benefits of screening mammography are manifested. Patients still come to the office with a chief complaint of a breast lump (even after a normal screening mammogram) which should be evaluated by a breast surgeon on a clinical basis and biopsy done if present. Other symptoms include:bloody nipple discharge, nipple excema, redness/.

What does male breast cancer look like to a man? What are the symptoms of men's breast cancer?

The same as women: All men have some breast tissue. Male breast cancer does occur and it looks on a mammogram the same as female. It often presents as a new lump or mass in the breast/chest. Male breast cancer can usually be treated if caught early, but unfortunately it is often diagnosed late in men. If you have a new mass/lump chest, please have it evaluated by a doctor.

Usually: A firm hard painless breast lump that persists after completion of the menstrual cycle. But small breast cancers will have no feeling and not be able to be felt & seen only on mammogram or breast ultrasound.
