Yes: It is very rare to have breast cancer before the age of 30. The most common symptom is a painless breast lump that one can feel. Lumps can also be seen by mammogram.

Breast lump, etc. : The most common sign/symptom is the presence of a lump in the breast. Other symptoms include nipple discharge, nipple inversion, skin indentation, and breast pain. Nevertheless, the majority of people diagnosed with breast cancer have no symptoms whatsoever. The best way to diagnose breast cancer early is to have routine screening mammograms beginning at age 40.
