  • You or your doctor feels a lump or thickening in your breast, and your doctor suspects breast cancer
  • Your mammogram shows a suspicious area in your breast
  • An ultrasound scan reveals a suspicious finding
  • Your breast MRI reveals a suspicious finding
  • You have unusual nipple changes, including crusting, scaling, dimpling skin or bloody discharge
