In brief: Lump is a symptom
If you mean to say symptoms of breast cancer, the commonest symptom is a lump in the breast.
Other less common symptoms are nipple discharge, and retraction, rash on the nipple and surrounding skin, pain in breast, redness and swelling of the skin over the breast, mass in axilla and in some cases the first symptoms are due to metastases in other organs. Most early cancers have no symptoms.
