My lady friend (62 yrs) has had a piercing pain in her left

Resolved Question:

My lady friend (62 yrs) has had a piercing pain in her left nipple (inverted) since Wed 4/11. There is a hard lump (about the size of a plum) underneath the nipple, which is VERY tender to the touch.
Without an examination, is there any way you can give a possible explanation for this condition.
Many thanks
