Dr. Naoto Ueno, chief of Translational Breast Cancer Research at the Center, says in the interview with the Truth About Cancer:

There are breast cancers that present as half a lump or there may be no lump at all. It could just be a strange-looking skin appearance or skin being red or dimpled.

The back pain can also be an indicator of cancer because when tumors are developing in a woman’s breast, they put pressure on the ribs and spine causing new found and persistent pain.
