What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

When breast cancer starts out, it is too small to feel and does not cause signs and symptoms.
As it grows, however, breast cancer can cause changes in how the breast looks or feels.

Symptoms may include—

New lump in the breast or underarm (armpit).
Thickening or swelling of part of the breast.
Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.
Redness or flaky skin in the nipple area or the breast.
Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.
Nipple discharge other than breast milk, including blood.
Any change in the size or the shape of the breast.
Pain in any area of the breast.
