In brief: No single answer

Tumors can feel soft or hard and may be painless or painful, depending on the type and location.
Sometimes they are associated with changes to the overlying skin. A physician can check any skin spot or lump that is tender, itching, oozing, scaly, doesn't heal, has irregular color, swollen, is enlarging, or any other changes that worry you and make suggestions for further evaluation.
