Early breast cancer usually does not cause physical pain, and symptoms may not initially be noticeable. As the cancer grows, it can cause changes that include:

  • A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area
  • A change in the shape or size of the breast
  • Nipple discharge or tenderness
  • Inverted nipple
  • Ridges or pitting of the breast (resembling the skin of an orange)
  • A change in the way the skin of the breast, nipple, or areola (dark area surrounding the nipple), looks or feels (for example, warm, swollen, red or scaly)
  • A sore or ulcer on the breast that does not heal
  • If you notice any of the above symptoms, contact your doctor immediately for an examination.
