red spot and lump

I was getting ready to take a shower yesterday and saw a red spot above the nipple on my right breast.  I felt around and there was a small lump.  It is somewhat sore.  I had a mammogram in June and it was clear.  I have made an appt. with the doc for tomorrow.  I was just hoping for a little info now. The waiting is really getting to me and I am stressing out.

Hi.
Based on your post, it seems that you have a beginning localized infection in your right breast.  It could be a beginning abscess formation.  This usually presents with a lump in the breast, with associated erythema (redness) of the overlying skin, and occasional pain on the involved site.
I agree with your decision to see your doctor for evaluation.  
Relax and stay positive.
