I don't really know why this lump wouldn't show up on either test. The only thing I can think of would apply to the Mammogram; if the lump is positioned so that it would take a special view for it to show up. I'm confident that the Breast Specialist can solve this mystery; especially since the lump is easily felt by exam. Please keep us posted after you see the Specialist.   Regards ....
