I can understand your apprehensions because of the family history of breast cancer. Although the breast increases in size during pregnancy and there is some normal discharge in the third trimester, the best way to rule out something serious is by getting an Ultrasound of the breast (absolutely safe during pregnancy). Also you should visit a surgeon and have him examine the lump you are talking about.

Hope everything turns out to be normal.
