Finding a breast lump can be alarming, but please remember it doesn't necessarily mean you have breast cancer.
A lump can result from one of many benign (non-cancerous) conditions. Still, the possibility does exist that the lump could be cancerous. It is important that you see your doctor promptly for an evaluation.
Breast changes to watch for:
- Abnormal lump or thickening in or near breast or underarm
- Change in size or shape of breast
- Abnormal nipple discharge
- Change in color or texture of breast, aureola or nipple
- Skin irritation, dimpling or puckering of breast
- Focal pain (distinct pain in an area of your breast)
- Nipple turning inward
