What is your age??? Depending on the age there are various causes of such lump. Whatever it may be my advice would be that yyou consult your doctor right away as any lump in breast should not be ignored. Get a check up done and follow the advice of your doctor . For the sharp pain you can take simple pain killer or paracetamol if it is unbearable. Take care.

Oncologist, Surgical Dr. Rohan Khandelwal's  Response
Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem but I am glad that you are seeking medical attention for the same.
The pain which you are describing could be due to many factors. The most common is fibroadenosis, which occurs in middle aged women and is associated with lumps and pain in the breast, which is more before the menses. These lumps are usually not malignant and the pain gradually subsides.
If you have pain at other points as well, then it could be a condition known as fibromyalgia, which responds to medications.
I would advise that you visit a breast surgeon and a physician and let them evaluate you for these conditions.

Hope you get well soon.
