What symptoms are common in breast cancer?

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.
