A feeling of “a lump inside of” your body is a non-specific sensation, that might be pleurisy.  Such a sensation could simply be a strain of some part of your chest wall or a symptom of lung disease.  Further testing, including a chest X-ray, will be needed to determine if you have any lung disease.  What you describe would be an unusual sign of cancer.
