Breast or nipple pain:-
Women may feel distress and pain as the cancer grows and spreads in the breast. A tumor located directly behind the nipple causes pain and discomfort in the breast. Sometimes pain can be felt in the back or shoulders rather than the chest or breasts.
Nipple that is turned slightly inward or inverted:-
One of the most common locations for a breast tumor is just beneath the nipple which can lead to changes in the appearance and feel of the nipple. It might have become inverted, flattened or indented.
