Knowing how your breasts normally look and feel is an important part of breast health. Finding breast cancer as early as possible gives you a better chance of successful treatment. But knowing what to look for does not take the place of having regular mammograms and other screening tests . Screening tests can help find breast cancer in its early stages, before any symptoms appear.

The most common symptom of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. A painless, hard mass that has irregular edges is more likely to be cancer, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded. They can even be painful. For this reason, it is important to have any new breast mass, lump, or breast change checked by a health care professional experienced in diagnosing breast diseases.

Sometimes a breast cancer can spread to lymph nodes under the arm or around the collar bone and cause a lump or swelling there, even before the original tumor in the breast is large enough to be felt. Swollen lymph nodes should also be checked by a health care provider.

Breast cancer is cancer that develops from breast tissue. [8] Signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, or a red scaly patch of skin. [1] In those with distant spread of the disease , there may be bone pain , swollen lymph nodes , shortness of breath , or yellow skin . [9]

Outcomes for breast cancer vary depending on the cancer type, extent of disease , and person's age. [14] Survival rates in the developed world are high, [15] with between 80% and 90% of those in England and the United States alive for at least 5 years . [5] [4] In developing countries survival rates are poorer. [2] Worldwide, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in women, accounting for 25% of all cases. [16] In 2012 it resulted in 1.68 million new cases and 522,000 deaths. [16] It is more common in developed countries [2] and is more than 100 times more common in women than in men. [15] [17]

The first noticeable symptom of breast cancer is typically a lump that feels different from the rest of the breast tissue. More than 80% of breast cancer cases are discovered when the woman feels a lump. [18] The earliest breast cancers are detected by a mammogram . [19] Lumps found in lymph nodes located in the armpits [18] can also indicate breast cancer.

Thanks to research, more people are surviving breast cancer than ever before, yet there are still nearly 1,000 women who die of breast cancer every month in the UK.

In this section, you’ll find the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, how you can reduce your risk of getting breast cancer and what you need to know about breast screenings.

This section will help you to understand your results, find out about your breast care team and give advice on coping with your diagnosis.

Breast cancer is a disease in which certain cells in the breast become abnormal and multiply uncontrollably to form a tumor. Although breast cancer is much more common in women, this form of cancer can also develop in men. In both women and men, the most common form of breast cancer begins in cells lining the milk ducts (ductal cancer). In women, cancer can also develop in the glands that produce milk (lobular cancer). Most men have little or no lobular tissue, so lobular cancer in men is very rare.

In its early stages, breast cancer usually does not cause pain and may exhibit no noticeable symptoms. As the cancer progresses, signs and symptoms can include a lump or thickening in or near the breast; a change in the size or shape of the breast; nipple discharge, tenderness, or retraction (turning inward); and skin irritation, dimpling, or scaliness. However, these changes can occur as part of many different conditions. Having one or more of these symptoms does not mean that a person definitely has breast cancer .

In some cases, cancerous tumors can invade surrounding tissue and spread to other parts of the body. If breast cancer spreads, cancerous cells most often appear in the bones, liver, lungs, or brain. Tumors that begin at one site and then spread to other areas of the body are called metastatic cancers .
