Not all women with breast cancer have signs or symptoms. Getting an annual mammogram greatly increases your chance of finding breast cancer in the early stages, when it is easier to beat. When performing breast self-exams you should look for the following signs & symptoms:

  • New lump or mass: A lump that is painless, hard and has uneven edges is more likely to be cancer. However, some cancers can be tender, soft and round. If you have any questions or concerns, consult your physician.
  • Painful nipple or the nipple turning inward
  • Discharge from the nipple (not breastmilk)
  • Lump or mass under your arms
  • Swelling on a part of the breast
  • Irritated or dimpling skin
  • Redness on the breast or nipple
  • Rough and scaly breast or nipple
