Sorry, appeaently I didn't put all the information in my question... my bad!
But I am referring to my breast, like Inside, not on the skin

ok, when did you first notice the change in the breast?

Ask Your Own Oncology Question

and is there any warmth or redness over it on the surface of the breast?

Today and no there's not. I am guessing it's just normal Brest tissue because it's not hard. But there's no change in my skin at all

there are changes that start happening to the breast due to pregnancy as hormone levels change and the breast tissue begins to get ready to produce breast milk. If its only been there a day, I would recommend trying a warm compress on it tonight and tomorrow. If its not improving in 2 days, you can make an appointment with your OB/GYN and they can do a breast exam.

This is Dr. David

I think I have helped you before.

during pregnancy, you can get swelling and filling of milk glands in your breast which can cause lumps and bumps in your breast.

a blocked milk gland can also cause a lump in your breast and when it becomes unblocked, it can disappear

this would not be a sign of breast cancer

let me know if you have other questions.
