I have a lump in my left breast that feels about the size of a plum pit. I have no symptoms of breast cancer, but could it still be it?

Yes, it can. This is why women are encouraged to do a self exam regularly, like every month or so. It can still be benign, but cancer must be ruled out. Mammograms at a certain age are also very important for the same reason. So the next step is to see your doctor to get this examined with tests, and the like, to find out exactly what this is.
Possible. Any lump in the breast , in adult the first thing is to rule out is cancer must have examination mammogram ( & sono if needed ) and biopsy to prove other wise , will not have any symptoms in early stages, please see your doctor.
Yes. Suggest a breast ultrasound, physical breast examination, and if those are not revealing, bilateral diagnostic mammogram. Af after that, there remains clinical suspicion, an MRI might be useful. Never let a negative imaging test dissuade from biopsy of a palpable clinically suspicious breast mass.

Do I have breast cancer on my left breast I formed this brown spot that has now became the size of a quater. About a week ago I notice that their is now a lump their problet the size of a pea that has become very tender.

Hello. . Hello. I dont know if you have cancer. Most breast cancers aren't tender. Cancers usually don't grow tremendously quickly. However, it doesn't state how long the brown spot has been there. Possibly the brown spot might be a mole. I don't know if you are fair skinned or have had very much sun exposure. Please check the brown spot for the following. This information comes directly from the american academy of dermatology. Asymmetry: if the mole has asymmetry (one half is unlike the other half). Border: the border is irregular, scalloped or poorly defined. Color: the color is varied and has shades of tan, brown or black; is sometimes white, red or blue. Diameter: the diameter is more than 6 mm (the size of a pencil eraser). Evolving: a mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color. If you have an irregular mole that itches, bleed or is painful, that can be worrisome for possible skin cancer. I do recommend that this be evaluated. Normally, breast tumors are evaluated by general surgeons and possible skin cancers are evaluated by dermatologists. Because of the location, i recommend that you see a general surgeon. Take care.
