In brief: blood from nipple
Although most breast cancers present with a lump or abnormal mammogram, some present with nipple discharge.
The discharges to be worried about are bloody and sometimes thick clear fluid (reminds one of fluid in a blister) - especially if you are post-menopausal. Most green or brown nipple discharge in premenopausal women is not cancer. Unusually, bc can present as breast pain.

In brief: Skin changes, etc.
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 reddness, nipple inversion, nipple discharge, breat pain, and/or the presence of a lump in the armpit. Best bet for diagnosis: yearly mammograms!

In brief: Mammogram abnormalit
If nammogram showed microcalcification that could be early sign of breast cancer.
