The first symptom for a phyllodes-tumor is a lump in the breast
- The lump feels smooth to touch.
- It is freely mobile and may be mistaken for the more common benign tumour fibroadenoma
- Phyllodes are known to grow rapidly.
- These are generally painless lumps, but if they become very big they can cause pain
- In neglected extreme cases, the tumor can break through your skin leading to an open sore on the breast.
