Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have doubt of having lump beneath your nipples when you squeeze it.
I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me few more details to make comments on your problem.
1) Do you have any discharge from the nipples ?
2) Do you have any pain at rest in the nipples or beneath the nipples.?
3) Can you palpate the lump on palpation with flat hands ?

Most likely it is due to inflammation of the nipples secondary to hormonal imbalance which is very common at this age and can be cured by anti inflammatory medicines like Diclofenac
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment if required.

Hope I have answered your query.
Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions I shall be happy to help you.
Thanks with Regards.

Thanks for follow up.
The lump that you feel soft with top of the skin and feels hard on squeezing is normal
As you do not have pain and any discharge you need not worry at all.It may be due to inflammation which can be controlled with anti inflammatory drugs.

Thanks and Regards.
