Hello Intan, thank you for the question.
The lump you are describing has several possibilities. Lumps can come from breast tissue, starting from the skin or breast filling tissue. Lumps can also come from structures outside the breast. Lump in breast tissue is an abnormal tissue growth. Lumps can be cysts, benign tumors, or malignant tumors. Some conditions that are characterized by breast lumps include:
cyst, a fluid-filled sac
fibroadenoma, is a benign tumor consisting of connective tissue cells. Its growth is often influenced by hormonal factors
intraductus papilloma, tissue growth in the milk ducts
lipoma, fat tissue tumor
mastitis, inflammation of the breast tissue, generally accompanied by pain and redness of the breast
Breast lumps can amount to one or more than one. Lumps can occur in one or both breasts. Lumps that are likely to be benign are generally palpable or soft, dense, can be moved (not bound by surrounding tissue), painless. A woman must be vigilant if a breast lump is immovable (or bound to surrounding tissue, the skin over the lump becomes wrinkled or injured, the lump may bleed easily, pain and redness, the lump enlarges quickly.
You should immediately consult a doctor, because to be able to make a diagnosis, the disorder must be examined directly. The doctor may perform an ultrasound, mammography, MRI, or biopsy. The doctor will determine the next action after a successful diagnosis upright.
Thus the information that can be conveyed, hopefully helps. Regards.
