Being that your daughter is 12, is she fully developed yet?   Is the lump on just one side or two?   I remember when my daughter was about 11 or 12, we too felt a lump just underneath her nipple on one side.  She said it was tender and painful.  It turned out to be her breast "bud", the beginnings of getting breast tissue!   Within a week, her other side began with the same thing.   I think it sounds like your daughter is beginning to develop.  Check with her pediatrician though just to put your mind at ease. Her doctor can give her a world of information on what to expect during puberty.  Good luck and thanks for being an observant, concerned mom!!
