I found a lump...

I found a lump around for inches above my left arm pit. Should I be concerned?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

I noticed it two months ago. It seems firm

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have breast implants and before had a tiny suspicious lump size of grain of rice in breast that disappeared. Also I had a lump that disappeared when it came time to biopsy it.

Yes, any kind of breast in that area should be thoroughly evaluated along with full breast check up to rule out anything concerning so i would advise you to see your doctor and follow further workup to be on safe side.
