In brief: Not usually

Painless lump is the main sign of breast cancer.
So look for any lump. Otherwise go see a skin specialist(dermatologist in case the itching is severe or getting worse...It may go away on its own if it is minor probelm.

In brief: Generally no

Breast cancer in its early stages has no symptoms.
A firm breast lump can form over time. An uncommon form of breast cancer can present as a nipple scaling lesion, paget's. Pain or itching are not usually seen in breast cancer. But you should have an examination with your doctor to be sure.
