Diagnosis

Breast cancer is often found as a painless lump by the woman or her partner.
Other symptoms include:

Nipple changes such as pulling in of the nipple (retraction), nipple discharge or eczema

Pulling in or dimpling of the skin

Pain - breast pain is an unusual way for cancer to present but pain is occasionally the first symptom. As with any other symptoms breast pain needs a thorough checkout to exclude cancer.

Mammographic screening may detect small lumps or other changes before they can be felt. Increasingly cancers are found by screening before they are large enough to feel.
