Are lacerations on breasts signs of cancer?

well my best friend jus called and told me that there is something wrong with her! she said she thought they looked like lacerations but she had a couple of scabs on her breasts! one the size of a quarter and one as small as a pee. she said they are very painful and they've been there for four months! so here i am googling it while on the phone with her trying to find some answers! she is a very big girl with extremely large breasts. could this be a sign of cancer or have u ever heard of something like this?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. She may have fibroadenoma, fibroadenosis or some benign proliferative breast lesion or cancer. She should go for mammography and fine needle aspiration cytology or tru cut biopsy of that lump. It will give you exact diagnosis.
Then she should take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
