In brief: EARLY CANCER=NONE
Early breast cancer may have no symptoms: that is why it is so important to get yearly mammograms @ 40 yo and up.
A 'lump' may be palpable (felt) when the cancer has progressed to >1cm size or greater. Other late findings: lymph nodes in the 'arm pit' (axilla), 'dimpling' of the skin, or nipple discharge. Inflammatory breast cancer can present as a 'red rash' on 1 breast or a nipple involvement.

Pathology
In brief: May be nothing
Many early breast cancer are asymptomatic and are found surreptitiously by mammogram.
Others can present as a lump (often without pain) or perhaps with a nipple discharge (possibly bloody). Signs of more advanced breast cancer can include dimpling of the skin, nipple retraction, skin ulceration or a redness to the skin. It is important to receive regular mammograms and to perform self exam.
