Hi there.

It is very hard to say if this will turn to cancer, but most of these lesions turn out and stay benign.  Characteristics of lumps that can point out to a possible cancer would include gritty irregular borders, hard fixed nodules, and associated skin dimpling.  These are the lump characteristics that you should watch out for in your breast and seek attention if any of these arise.  

Regards.
