Are you nursing by any chance?  Could be a clogged duct too.  I get those stupid lumps sometimes.  Hurts like crazy but I heat them and massage them away.

I get something like that all the time. If is a clogged gland. If will fester and pop like a bog pimple. Put hot washcloth on it to bring it to the surface. When it pops try not to let it get anywhere it can cause more. Cancer normally would feel like a small pebble. If would normally be very hard no pain.

I'm sure she can refer you to someone that specializes in that. Hope you get it all figured out and get better.

 ITS very alarming to find a lump.. The best thing to do is visit your ob/gyn, more than likely you will have to have a mammogram  or an ultrasound to see what it is, but please take care of it, early detection the best protection..  I think your primary care will also tell you the same but being that ob/gyn specializes in this kind of stuff, I would go to her.. All the best..

I'd go ahead and ask your OB/Gyn. My sister and my mom both have gotten rather large lumps under their arms. In their situation though it was just a boil. Their doctor lanced it and then put guaze.
