The earliest sign of cancer may be a lump in one breast. Occasionally a woman may detect redness, dimpling, thickening or warmth of the breast skin, flaking or retraction of the nipple region or a lump in the armpit region. Sometimes these symptoms are caused by conditions that are not cancer but a woman should let her doctor know immediately if she detects one of these abnormalities.  Many times cancer is detected by mammogram in a person who has no symptoms or signs of cancer.
