Early Signs of Breast Cancer

According to the National Cancer Institute, breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in American women. Early breast cancer doesn't always cause pain. In fact, when breast cancer first develops, there may be no symptoms at all. But as the cancer grows, it may cause changes you should watch for: 

  • A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area
  • A change in the size or shape of the breast
  • Nipple discharge or tenderness
  • Ridges or pitting of the breast
  • A change in the look or feel of the skin of the breast, such as warmth, swelling, or tenderness


Other breast conditions

Although many women fear cancer, most breast problems are not cancerous. Some of the more common breast conditions include:

  • Mastalgia (breast pain)
  • Breast lumps
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Nipple problems and discharge (abnormal) 
  • Breast infections and inflammations
