Re: large breast lunp

My mother had breast cancer twice and each time she found a large lump the lump did not hurt at all. It felt more like a large pebble with no feeling whatsover. I think the fact that your wife's is sore to touch is a good sign actually. I'm going through something right now and it is scary. Tell not to worry too much though.

Re: large breast lunp

It could be an infection, a cyst, or a plugged milk duct. There is also a tumor called a phyllodes tumor that can appear literally overnight and already be big when you find it. They can be painful or not painful and can be anywhere from benign to cancerous. I have one and it literally was just there one day and it is 2.2 cm. She is definately doing the right thing by getting that ultrasound. Please come back and let us know what the ultrasound shows.
