Breast self exam adv: I would advise you to examine your breast once monthly. The best time to do this exam is soon after your monthly period has ended.

Usually not possible: To tell. It is generally not feasible to tell if a lump is cancerous. However, hard lumps that are fixed to the skin or chest wall are likely to be cancer, however, lumps without these characteristics can still be cancerous. If you have a lump in your breast, please see your doctor for examination and may be mammogram.
Many things: There are many things that cause breast lumps and are divided into cancerous and noncancerous/benign. We do not know the causes of them. Cysts, fluid filled sacs, occur in most of us around our menstrual cycle and other hormonal changes.
Nodular: Breast lumps are commonly distinct from the tissue they arise in. You can always compare the feeling of a similar area on the same breast or the other breast so see if it is different. They usually have "soft" edges so can easily slip from the fingers. Any abnormality should be seen by your doctor.
Many Possibilities: The breast by its very nature is "lumpy-bumpy", often making it difficult to distinguish lumps that count from normal breat tissue. Lumps "that count" (dominant masses) tend to be distinct from normal breast tissue. They may be fluid-filled (cysts) or solid (tumors)--this can be differentiated by ultrasound. Tumors may be benign or malignant--this can be differentiated by biopsy.
