Child having hard lump under nipple, not painful. Should i go for paediatrician advice?

My daughter, age 6, has a small lump under her left nipple . When I feel it I can almost feel a stem to it underneath the skin. The lump is not round and swollen but a small bump with a stemlike hardness underneath the skin. It has been there for about 6 months now. No complaints of it hurting or being painful, just noticeable that it is there. Is this something I should get checked by her pediatrician?

thanks for query
hard lump painless in left breast in your 6 years old baby
its very unlikely for the lump to be malignant in this age group
other d/ds of this lump which is coming to my mind is firoma, lipoma, small fibroid, hamartoma etc
99% chance that the lump will be of benign nature
as the mass is palpable it is better to do atleast a FNAC from that lump to know the diagnosis
consult her pediatrician
but need not to worry
thank u
