Thank you for the excellent description of the lump. From what you describe, this does not sound like a malignant or dangerous mass. Most likely this is a benign cyst or a fibroadenoma. You should certainly see your doctor to get checked to know for sure. A mammogram, ultrasound or a biopsy may be done for this.
