Symptoms

A woman whose breast cancer is in the early stages may not experience any symptoms. As the cancer progresses, however, she may notice some of the following changes in her body:

  • A lump or thickening in or near the breast or underarm
  • A change in the shape or size of the breast
  • Spontaneous nipple discharge
  • Dimpling, puckering, redness, or scaling on the breast, nipple or areola

These symptoms need to be evaluated but are not always related to cancer.
