In brief: A palpable mass

A painless mass that you can feel is the usual symptom of cancer.
Not all breast masses are cancers, of course, but if you have one that persists, you need to see a doctor. Conversely, some breast cancers can't be felt, they can only be seen with an imaging study, such as a mammogram, ultrasound or MRI.

In brief: Breast Cancer

The usual first symptom is a painless lump in the breast.
Most breast lumps are fluid-filled cysts or fibroadenomas (a clumping of glandular tissue) which are non-cancerous (benign). However, you should always see a doctor if a lump develops, as the breast lump may be cancerous.Dimpling or thickening of some of the skin on a part of a breast.Changes in the size or shape of a breast.Rarely, a discharge occurring from a nipple
