According to the American Cancer Society, any of the following unusual changes in the breast can be a symptom of breast cancer:
-swelling of all or part of the breast -skin irritation or dimpling -breast pain -nipple pain or the nipple turning inward -redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin -a nipple discharge other than breast milk -a lump in the underarm area
These changes also can be signs of less serious conditions that are not cancerous, such as an infection or a cyst. Again, it’s important to get any breast changes checked out promptly by a doctor.
