Dear lorna874, A lipoma is a benign (non-cancerous) tumor composed of fatty tissue.  There is generally no treatment needed of a lipoma if it is not causing you problems, and we are sure it is a lipoma.  
It is impossible to give an explanation for the symptoms that you are experiencing over the internet without ability to evaluate and put into context.  These are not usual symptoms of breast cancer.
