That is a very good question. I'm quite sure so don't take my word for it but i believe they do. (if your talking about breast cancer)

Not ordinarily. There can be cases of it, but a regularly appearing and disappearing lump (according to your cycle) can be fibroids. In larger breasted women, this is a common condition. Fibroids are a benign cyst that will increase or decrease according to your cycle in most cases.

By all means, see your doctor! This condition has medication that can help, and make the breast less painful, for fibroids can be very uncomfortable. It also helps for peace of mind to find out if the lump is a tumor or a fibroid. Knowledge is power, and you need to know exactly what it is that you are dealing with.
