Breast cancer symptoms can vary from woman to woman, but there are several common signs to look for.
You may notice a change in the way your breast or nipple feels; this may present as a lump or nipple tenderness.
Other symptoms can present as a change in how the breast or nipple looks.
Changes in breast size or shape, a nipple that is turned inward, changes in the texture of the skin of the breast, areola, or nipple, or fluid discharge from the nipple are all frequent symptoms.
In many cases, early breast cancer usually does not cause pain. However, you should always see your doctor about any breast pain or any other changes you notice that do not go away.
