Hi there.

Thank you for posting your question. I will do my best to help you.

This could be either an intradermal cyst, small sebaceous cyst or a lipoma. It is almost certainly non-cancerous but get it checked out. It has nothing to do with breast cancer and never will have.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
