Hello, all breast lumps are not cancers. Breast abcess, benign tumors can also present with lump. If there is local collection of abcess in breast it need to be drained ,if its benign tumor it has to be removed surgically. If she needs surgery whether minor or major 4-5 days post operation care is required. So let her stay in hospital.
