Breast cancer is a type of cancer that forms in the cells of the breast. It is the second most diagnosed cancer in women resident in the United States. It is more common with women, but can manifest in men.

 Early detection of cancer, to a large extent, helps in saving the lives of patients. Breast cancer varies from the early stage, where treatment is effective, to a metaststic stage where it spreads to other parts of the body.
Signs and symptoms of breast cancer
A breast lump.

This usually feels abnormal from other surrounding tissues of the breast. The lump may also be found in your underarm. Lumps usually persist after menstrual periods. The lumps are usually painless. Mammograms can help to discover lumps long before they become visible on the skin.
Swollen armpit.

Lumps are usually painless; however, if you notice pain or tenderness in your breast, this may be a sign of cancer.
A conspicuous indentation or flattening of the breast
Abnormal mammogram (the use of x-rays to diagnose and detect breast tumors through the process of mammography)
Reddish appearance of the breast's skin
Nipple discharges which may be bloody, clear or any other color

Sudden inversion of the nipples
The areola (skin surrounding the nipple) or breast skin begins to peel, scale or flake.
