The first sign or symptom of breast cancer for many women is usually a lump in their breast ..Other signs could include
a swelling of part of the breast.
skin irritation or dimpling.
nipple pain or the nipple turning inward.
redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin.
a nipple discharge other than breast milk,especially if it's spontaneous ( comes out without squeezing the nipple)
These signs and symptoms do NOT necessarily mean that it's breast cancer but you should tell your doctor right away about any lump in the breast or underarm area and any changes in the skin of the breast, nipple, or areola (the area around the nipple).
In the early stages of breast cancer, you may not feel any pain and there may be no symptoms at all as it happened in my case.I found out about the small tumor when I had my Mammogram.
Thanks for updating. I will have a mamo done asap to determine my breast pain and under armpit pain, shoulder and arm pain after aspiration 3 months back.My rib cage under my left arm near my breast is painful. Its very scary.
