I notice a few days ago the pain in my left breast and I really didn't think anything of it then today the pain was more noticeable and I felt where the pain was and there was a lump and not a small one it was really noticeable I even got my husband to feel it and he said yes that he felt it too. I know this is a dumb question but for breast cancer is the lump suppose to be sore? this is all new to me and I thought I'd come here and ask you all.

Soreness has nothing to do with cancer, Annie. Some of us had soreness, others did not. The doctors will say it is a good sign if it hurts or moves....while it may predict a more likely scenario, nothing is for sure until they examine the cells. Usually they do a mammogram and ultrasound first to get a good look, but a biopsy is the way to go. Just don't let them dismiss you because it hurts or moves.....and keep in mind that 80% of breast lumps are benign. Hope yours is too.
