Knot with pain on the side of the breast, protruding vein. What is it?

Hello. I have recently discovered a knot on the side towards the top of my left breast . There is some pain if this not is touched. I have also discovered on the front of my left breast something sticking out. It feels like a chord. It also kind of looks like a huge veign going in a circle but has no color to it. There is a little pain when touched. I am going to the doctor tomorrow. But I wanted to get an idea of what this might sound like.

Thanks for writing to us.
The knot in the breast tissue can be a benign swelling due to fibroma or an inflammation and may be suggestive of a cancerous growth., A direct examination and investigations like FNAC will help in confirming the diagnosis.
