Is in in your arm pit?  I found a lump in my arm pit a little over a year ago.  I had a mammogram and saw a breast cancer surgeon.  He biopsied it and it came back as a benign fibroadenoma.  I have it monitored about every six months, however, I was scheduled to have it checked and possibly removed last month, but I was pregnant and cancelled the appointment.  Unfortunately, I had a miscarriage.  But, it was really sore when I was pregnant.  The hormones can make these tumors grow and be sore.  Now, that my hormones are dropping and I have lost all of my pregnancy symptoms, it isn't as sore.

Ur milk ducts can extend under your arms.  Mention it to ur dr and they will monitor it.  I had this during pregnancy number 3.  It turned out to be nothing and went away after birth.

I agree with the others.  It is probably nothing to be concerned about, but any lump at any time should be reported to your Dr.  All the best to you!
