Anyone who has had a lump in their breast...

I was talking to my cousin today and she found a lump in her breast. She is calling tomorrow to make a doctors appt to have it checked out but she's scared it may be breast cancer. She had me feel of it and it's about the size of a quarter and rock hard and doesn't move. One of her friends is in nursing school and they looked in one of her books and it said normally if it is a cyst then it will move around?
She says it hurts and sometimes feels like it's burning.
If anyone has had a lump before whether it was a cyst or actually breast cancer, what were your "symptoms" as far as did it hurt or move around or rock hard like my cousins is?

  • I have recurring breast cysts.

    they get to about the size of a grape.

    I've had u/s and mammograms every 6 months since, and nothing.

    mine didn't hurt, or didn't until I noticed and then would fiddle and poke it repeatedly.

  • I've had a few breast lumps over the years- apparently I am prone to cysts. Mine were all checked via u/s and all turned out to be cystic in nature. They usually didn't hurt (other than me poking them out of worry) but I did have one that ruptured and that felt very tender and included a burning kind of sensation. I hope the doctor can give her good news- good that she is checking it out, it's better safe than sorry!
