Ordinarily I might say that this could be a cyst or Fibroadenoma since you say that it causes you pain. The other symptoms you describe would not be related to a breast cyst or any other abnormality of the breast however unless the sweating is caused by anxiety or reaction to the pain. Lump pain is very rarely (if ever) associated with breast cancer and the discomfort from a cyst or Fibroadenoma that small wouldn't ordinarily be that severe. Sorry but I can't be of much help; you'll just have to wait for your tests and the results.   Kindest regards ....
