Quite hard to tell: By looking and feeling, sometimes we shine a light, others we aim an ultrasound beam to detect the internal consistency. In the end it may need to be excised and looked at under the microscpoe to know, but intermediate steps are attempts at aspiration and looking at cells if any. ...Read more
Unlikely: If you haven't had a diagnosis of prostate cancer (pca) before, then hip pain is highly unlikely to be the first sign. If your blood psa level was low, then you could practically rule pca out. No need to do this test except to relieve you of unnecessary worry. Even if you do have pca diagnosis, other causes are more likely. It's even more unlikely if the pain is intermittent on both sides. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many Possibilities: In my surgical practice, the most common cause of a well-defined breast lump is a cyst. This can easily be differentiated from a tumor by ultrasound or needle aspiration. If the lump is solid, it may be due to a benign tumor (ie, fibroadenoma) or a cancer; the only way to determine this is by tissue diagnosis, which can usually be done by needle-biopsy in the office or breast center. ...Read more

Does a soft breast lump differ from a hard breast lump in a teenager in terms of chance for cancer?
There's a lump in the left breast of a male friend which he says is sometimes painful. Any solution?
See a Doctor: Any new, persistent lump in the breast should be a cause for concern, best handled by seeing your gyne or primary care doctor. While most cancers are not painful, it is not a reliable finding. Hopefully, your doctor will be able to alleviate your concern or refer you to a breast center/surgeon for definitive evaluation. I hope its a false alarm--good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
