In brief: Abnormality

Any change in the breast deserves evaluation by your doctor. Skin changes, nipple inversion, swelling of the breast, bloody nipple discharge, changes in the nipple.
Many early breast cancers are only found on mammogram or ultrasound. Breast self exam is important so that you can be familiar with your body and any changes.

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: It is without sympto

Breast cancer in early stages does not have any symptoms.
..Just a painless lump. More advanced cancers will cause pain and ulceration of the skin , it is after spread into the body when more symptoms appear usually in the form of fatigue, pain, loss of appetite and occasionally weight loss.
