    Hi TJ, often there are no obvious signs of breast cancer that you can clearly see. Some of the common signs or symptoms you might get include a lump or dimpling in the breast. Sometimes you can get redness, itchiness and/or swelling of a certain part of the breast or you may feel a swelling or lump in the lymph nodes of the arm pit. Some people experience tiredness. But even if you have one or more of these signs, try not to worry it still doesn't mean you have breast cancer. Remember that even when a lump is found, most breast lumps turn out to be benign. However it's extremely important that you SEE YOUR DOCTOR STRAIGHT AWAY if you're worried about anything. Having your doctor take a look and check everything will ease your worry, and if anything is found, you'll be able to take care of it quickly.
