In brief: See full answer

Breast cancer can have a variable presentation.
Typically it occurs as a hard painless lump. Sometimes all that is noticed is a skin retraction or "dimpling". Sometimes there is nipple discharge, especially bloody discharge. Inflammatory breast cancer is a very aggressive form and initially presents like an infection. Any new or persistent symptom needs to be reported to your physician.

In brief: Most common symptom?

The most common symptom of breast cancer is no symptoms at all.
It is important to perform your screening mammography as prescribed by your physician. The best chance for a cure happens when breast cancer is detected at the earliest stages.

In brief: Breast Lump

The most common symptom is the presence of a new breast lump.
Other things to look for include nipple discharge, especially clear or bloody, breast pain, and/or dimpling of the skin. Of course, the goal of breast cancer screening is to diagnose cancers before any of these symptoms develop. Please begin yearly mammography at age 40.
