What are the characteristics of cancerous lumps? Should they be painful? Are they mushy?

Variable

Cancer
Usually cancerous lumps like in the breast are hard and don't move well. Benign ones are usually softer, moveable, and can be tender. No way to tell for sure without seeing a doc and perhaps doing a biopsy depending on the physical findings. Have someone look at it!

Are breast-cancer lumps painful to have?

Not usually

Bryce: A lump that is close to the nipple where a lot of nerve endings are located can be painful and one closer to the armpit where there are also a lot of nerves can be painful. A lump in the main part of the breast is usually painless, hard and non-movable. Any lump should be checked out though. I recommend you call it to your doctor's attention so that appropriate testing can be done.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Are very painful breast lumps associated with cancer?

They can be.

Open-uri20121008-10559-z1akqs
A common misconception is that if a woman has a TENDER, PAINFUL lump in their breast, it is unlikely to be cancer. While it is true that many women with breast cancer do not have breast pain, the presence of pain DOES NOT exclude cancer as the cause. Bottom line: a new lump in the breast, painful or not, warrants medical evaluation.

If you press the lumps in breast, they are painful but they are painless if they are not pressed. Is that the symptom of breast cancer?

Get your mammograms

asmammograms as the recommended times but breast tenderness, with compression is not a sign of breast cancer. It usually does not present with pain. Gd luc

Dr. Zahid Niazi answered:

Can you get breast cancer if your breast get squeeze really hard and the next day it became very painful, swollen, red, warm, and lumps?

Trauma to breast.

Open-uri20131011-22315-11f4t39
No, squeezing injury will not result in overnight development of breast cancer. If the breast is red, painful and lumpy - the two diagnoses can be bruising or bruising with infection. See your PCP for an evaluation and management.

3 which is now 4 groin lumps in a week..had pap smear which was very painful. They havent before but had abnormal pap prev and hpv. Cervical cancer?

Negative pap?

Groin
If your present pap is negative, then it is more likely that the "groin lumps"(lymph nodes) are caused by an infection. Please see your MD for clarification.

Not likely

Cancer
At your age a cancer is unlikely. But, it is important to go to the clinic you were referred to. Infection is more likely.
