What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

I have been experiencing soreness in my left breast and noticed that I have blue veins running all over that breast. There are none on the right side. Plus heaviness on left side of back. Could this be an indication of breast cancer? Scheduled for a diagnostic mammo with us if indicated.

welcome to Health care magic.
1.Not always but possibilities can not be ruled out with out the ultrasound scan / mammogram.
2.The symptoms you have mentioned are seen in case of inflammatory breast conditions, infective causes ( abscess ).
3.If you have mentioned your age and reproductive status would have been helpful.
4.Presence of inflammation with ductal ectasia, might cause heaviness in the breast.
5.Get the scan done as scheduled and needful treatment - Good luck.
Hope it helps you. Wish you a good health.
