Pregnant. Lump on left side rib under armpit. What could this lump be?

Hi I am 15 weeks pregnant and i have noticed a lump on my left side maybe on my rib, under my armpit (about the same height as my breast ) I felt it while changing my top and lifting my arms i thought i had maybe pulled a muscle but i have not done anything to cause this so i looked in the mirror and i can clearly see it is larger than my right side which is fine - could this be to do with a blocked milk duct? i fear that it is a little too far away from my milk duct to be the cause but as i cannot get into a Doctor i would like a little advice to help my understand and calm my nerves :/ thankyou

In view of details it looks more like enlarged lymph node.This is commonest cause of lump in this region.
Your doctor can confirm this just by having look at it.
