Is It Abnormal When Lying Down For Nipple To Sink In? A Friend Of Mines Is Doing This And She Is Concerned Plus Has A Lump In Both Of Her Breast. She Said No Pain. She Was Told Cancer Hurts.

Answer

Breast cancer usually does not hurt. The most common type of breast cancer does not hurt unless a woman ignores a lump so long that it gets large enough to cause pain. There are some less common types of breast cancer that do hurt, so the wisest thing to do is see the doctor for any change that lasts longer than a month, especially when the change is only one side.
