Dear chuckandchristie98, Without further evaluation including physical examination it is impossible to say what this is.  You should bring this to the attention of your doctor who can check it and determine what if any further evaluation is recommended.

The lump you describe could be many things .... I would suggest that you see your Physician to investigate this further. He/She can do a clinical breast exam and recommend any tests he/she feels necessary to find out exactly what is causing this problem.  Regards ......
