Your wife should seek medical attention for this sore lump.Although cancer is almost never associated with pain,nevertheless she needs to have this mass checked out and most probably have some tests ordered by her doctor, like a Mammogram or an Ultrasound .This lump could be an infection, cyst, fibroadenoma or something more serious.I would urge you to make an appointment with her doctor to find out what's going on.
Best wishes to both of you.....
