In brief: Many or none

Proper screening with self breast exams looking for new lumps, breast exams by your physician looking for skin or nipple chanes as well as masses or lymph nodes, and mammogram and ultrasound if needed are the best ways to pick up early stage breast cancer before it causes any symptoms.
Once advanced it can cause many different symptoms throughout the body.

In brief: Mass

Breast cancer usually presents as a palpable mass or a suspicious finding on mammogram.
Advanced cancer can be found with a necrotic mass growing through the skin or causing skin changes secondary to size and edema. Metastatic (spread) disease is rarely a presenting finding. See your physician if you are concerned.
