In the majority of cases, localised breast cancer is asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis.

Signs and symptoms of breast cancer may include:

  • a lump in the breast or underarm area
  • inverted nipple
  • changes to the skin over the breast, such as retraction
  • pain in the breast
  • an inflammatory change such as redness or hardening of the breast
  • any nipple discharge—particularly clear discharge or bloody discharge

It’s good to remember that these changes are not always a sign of breast cancer.
However, the symptoms always require further evaluation to ensure a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Remember that by performing breast self-exams regularly, you will be able to more easily identify any changes in your breast.
