Can breast abnormalities be detected through physical examination alone ?

Hi, have a hard ridge surface under my nipple area, also have pebble area also in the same area. Have had a breast examination by my nurse. She confirmed that my breasts were normal. Would she have been able to detect if there were any abnormalities by a EXAMINATION?

Thanks for query,
By manual examination of breast we can get important information.
But to be on safe side go for Mammogrphy test to rule out any pathology.
Ok and bye.
