Usually : A painless lump. But you can have cancer without a palpable mass, and that is why you should get screening mammograms. Talk to your doctor about getting proper screening.

Mass is most common: Other possible signs of breast cancer include: swelling of all or part of breast (even if no distinct lump is felt); skin irritation or dimpling; breast or nipple pain; nipple retraction (turning inward); redness, scaliness or thickening of the nipple or breast skin; a nipple discharge other than breast milk. See your doctor for evaluation of any new breast mass/lump or breast change.
