This mass should be examined by a doctor .If pain is radiating from touch, it means it is an inflammatory mass.
FNAC( Fine needle biopsy) for diagnosis may be needed.
As you have had chest infection, could be some infected cellulitis, abscess formation may be taking place.
Try ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day and tramadol 50mg twice a day.
Quit smoking as smoking leads to cancer
