lump under ribs

I have felt a lump under my left breast close to the ribs.  I can't feel it with my hand but when I move a certain way or bend over I can feel something there.  It's like its getting caught or something.  It's not painful but just for a second.  It just feels like it shouldn't be there.  I am 37 years old and have no history of breast cancer in my family.  My sister had kidney cancer and my dad esophageal cancer.  I have never had a regular period and have always had awful menstrual symptoms.  I had my first period at 11 years old and have never had children.  Have there been links between lumps near ribs and breast cancer?
