In such a case when diagnosis is unsure of, mostly excision biopsy may be required especially if the breast lump is hard. Has your mother sustained trauma to that side if the breast before. Has our mother lost weight. Any nipple discharge. Is the breast lump hard. Any swellings in the armpits. It is better to follow up with a Surgeon and get it biopsied and tested for cancer.
