Here are some common symptoms for breast cancer:

1. Presence of a mass or lump is the first common sign.

This kind of lump is present all the time and does not get smaller or remains intact during menstrual cycle. This lump is attached to the skin and may not be moved. That must be another indication that it’s a cancer.

2. Changes in the nipple.

Normal nipples are pointed outwards always. Nipples that have become inverted must be examined by a doctor. A discharge, especially bleeding, from one nipple may be a sign of breast cancer too.

Upon seeing redness in the breast or at the nipple that do not vanish, you must go to your doctor. Swelling, increased warmth and redness are signs of inflammatory breast cancer.
