Exam and mammogram: Hello, if you have a new breast lump, it needs to be evaluated by your primary doctor and you may need a mammogram or ultrasound for evaluation. If it is truly a new hard lump it needs to be biopsied, but pain by itself may not be anything worrisome. Some cancers cause pain, others don't, so pain is not a very reliable symptom.

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

Exam: If you are able to feel a breast lump then you need to be seen by a doctor. A diagnostic mammogram can be done to evaluate the mass. A breast mass should not be causing shortness of breath.
