Please let me know a little more about the symptoms so that I can try to answer your question better. Since how long the knot is there? On which part of the breast in relation to nipple? The consistency? Did it increase in size? Is it movable? Any pain or tenderness?Any other symptom? Any significant past illness?

Thank you for the input.

The common causes of knot are benign ones like fibroadenoma, fibrocystic changes, cyst etc. Infection, trauma can be possible too, but it should have some pain. However an examination by doctor needs to be taken to exclude malignant ones. Mammograms, ultrasound study can be necessary.

Hope this information will help you.
