Sphere

In general usage, do you consider the word "sphere" to mean just the outside surface, or are the points inside the surface automatically considered part of the sphere (i.e., without having to say "a sphere and its interior")? How about in general mathematical usage (which may be different from the precise mathematical definition of a sphere, which is only the surface and not the interior)?
