I suppose the tingly feeling you mention could be associated with the lump if somehow a nerve was involved. It could also be non-related. From your description the lump may very well be a Fibroadenoma; a benign breast tumor that is quite common as are cysts. Both can be connected to hormone levels in the body. It's always best to have anything of this nature checked out by your Physician. An Ultrasound can usually indicate what the lump may represent. Regards ...

Cysts and Fibroadenomas both are either just left alone OR surgically removed. If it can't be determined to 100% certainty by film then perhaps a biopsy might be done. Cysts can on occasion just be drained if they are troublesome. It could just be pressing on a nerve, thus causing the tingling feeling you have. This of course may well be due to something else ... like a pinched nerve somewhere along the spine. I don't think there is anything to be terribly scared of here but you definitely need to investigate this problem. Regards ....

Sure, pinched nerves can cause all sorts of sensations from actual pain to tingling. Nerves are very sensitive little creatures. Breasts are usually tender at that time which is due to the hormonal changes that take place.  Regards ....

No, the only solution is to relieve the pressure on the nerve; where ever or whatever it is. Be sure to discuss this with your Dr. when you go. Take care ....

No problem, that's what we're here for. First you have to determine IF that is the cause and then determine exactly the nature of the cause by some investigative method ... X-ray or similar types of filming. It's similar to when, say your foot "goes to sleep" or if your arm is in an odd position as you sleep, it has that "prickly" feeling. It all just takes some "looking" for a cause. Please ck. back and let us know what you find out when you see the Dr. ....
