What is the difference between a lump in the breast and a hardness of the breast?

Most people are told to check for a lump in the breast.One person found a lump the size of a pea and after a mammogram it was the size of an orange.She had a mascetomy and died.A relative of this person does not have a lump but a hardness in the breast area.She is wondering if it is cancer and does not want to go to the doctor.This relative prefers death to the news that she has cancer.What would you say to this person?
