Brief Answer:
Most probably fibroadenosis or fat necrosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: Female/52 - pain in the right breast in deep tissue on pressure - not on moving or stretching - placing warm compresses...

With this typical history I would advise you the following:
Clinical examination by your Doctor/Surgeon.
Ultrasonography and FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology).
This will help to get a proper diagnosis and assure you if it is fibroadenosis or so. Fat necrosis would also give you the same symptoms. Additional mammography would help further. (cancers are usually not with pain or tenderness).

I hope this answer helps you to get you the proper diagnosis at the earliest, please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
