How big is it? Is it painful? When you press it, do you feel pain? Any other symptoms such as fever? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications? Any family medical history? Can you attach the photos here including the indent and the lump?

It's sort of pea size and not moveable, it's painless, I just noticed it when I was looking in the mirror as it slightly protrudes and as I felt it to see what it was, just incase it was the light, and it feels like a lump, my breast seems to look indented on the areola, this was a couple of months back, but really only when the nipple changes with the cold normally it looks the same as always. The lump under my arm I noticed a few months ago

It could be a fibroadenoma. One concern is that it is not moveable. Since the indent is with the cold temperature, it should be okay. But you should see your doctor to have an exam and mammogram & ultrasound if necessary for sure.
