Undiagnosed lump under right breast area - MALE

36 year old male. Recently felt a lump about 4 inches below my right nipple. It is around 1 x 3cm and isn't very movable. (It seems to move with all the tissue/skin if I stretch but doesn't feel like an ingrown hair/etc.) There is no pain and it is not visible. It feels similar to a swollen lymph node, but I know there isn't a lymph node there.  My doctor called for an ultrasound which failed to see anything. Any idea what this could be? Family is full of cancer, so of course worried. Thanks!

It may be a lipoma which is a benign fatty tumor. I seem to get them all the time. They are relatively soft if you push on them. See a doc to be sure.
Thanks so much for the reply!  I have already been to the doctor who sent me for an ultrasound. The technician said she didn't see anything and had a hard time finding the spot, though it is palpable.
