In brief: Yes
While the "classic" description of a breast cancer is "fixed" and "immovable", I have found many palpable breast cancers to be movable within the breast.
The bottom line is that when a woman finds a new lump in her breast, she should seek out medical attention for further evaluation regardless of its mobility within the breast.

In brief: Early on
As they grow they may attach to more tissue, muscle, or chest wall, making them more difficult to remove !
