I have a very painful lump in my breast that

I have a very painful lump in my breast that isn't "hot" or anything, but it really hurts.. I had a hysterectomy over 12 years ago and this isn't the kind of pain I use to have with my periods..I'm scheduled for a diagnostic mammogram and an ultrasound -- but could it be cancer? I've read that lumps that aren't painful most likely are but then i have read that painful lumps can be too?? I haven't had any diet changes or anything ---I'm just nervous

I have what my doctor and myself assume is cyclical axillary pain related to my menstrual cycle (worse pain closer to menstruation). There is also a small lump that increases and decreases in size. I had a clear mammogram two months ago, just prior to last gyno appt. This month, the pain is causing radiating pain down my arm from axilla to palmar forearm and up into anterior neck (SCM, anterior fibers of upper trap). I would describe as a nerve pain, aching.

My husband has a lump on his left breast it is about 6cm + in diameter. He is 45 years old and only suffers from high BP. He says that sometimes it is only painful if he touch it and sometimes is just pains the whole day. What is the chances of it being cancer or could it just be something small?
