Golf-Ball-Sized Lump in Breast

Hey y'all -- This is a bit odd, but my closest friend in town recently (yesterday) found a golf-ball-sized lump in her breast.  It's in the 'underboob' region, just above where the breast meets the rest of the torso. She has 'cysty breasts' normally, but she's never had a lump this large and when she saw a doc, the doc insisted that she immediately get an ultrasound and biopsy.  She's having them tomorrow.

So I know that this page is about vaginas and not breasts, and also that this isn't my issue, it's hers.  My mom had breast cancer and is now fine, but she and I never talked about it.  (Yeah, weird family dynamics.) However -- I am totally freaking out on my friend's behalf, but I really, really don't want to add my own freak-out to hers.  I'm wondering if anybody here has any experience with big boob lumps that are non-cancerous.

(She has no family history of breast cancer and she does not smoke, and she's 36.  So, the odds that it's cancer are a bit lower than if other risk factors were present.  But still.  Yipes.)
