Hi.  Can you give more details about yourself and about your lump? Are you male or female? How old are you? Where precisely is the lump located? Near or on your breast or on the chest wall itself? What are the other characteristics of that lump aside from being painful? How big is it? Is it red? What's the shape? Is it hard or soft?

I can answer your question better if you can give the additional information.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi.  From your description, it seems to me that the lump may be an infected lymph node or some form of bacterial skin infection (furuncle or cellulitis).  Consult with a doctor to be sure, and so you can be given the proper antibiotic treatment.  Offhand, it doesn't look like cancer to me.
