the main concern is on the breast lump and Rt sided back pain. the breast lump does need to be reviewed seriously at the earliest, since u write it is hard. It has to be evaluated to rule out malignancy. so a usg /mammogram would be useful.

Pain rt side of the back, could be due to renal cause, the plain urine examination would have been helpful to exclude blood, in the urine, so that the renal stone could be considered. It should be followed by an USG abd for evidence of kidney stone, size and any GB stone movement. Culture would be helpful if u have fever.
Lets not forget the Rt sided back pain could also be due to the GB stone and IBS.

for relief of symptoms you may take Tab Paraacetamol 1000 mgm one tab as and when reqd fro pan relief. Also I would advise that u take some probiotics { lactoacidbacillus}, and Tab. Tilpride (Levosulpiride+Pantoprazole) taken as One Tablet morning and night, which would help in the control of IBS symptoms.
Also be careful on your diet, fat free diet, taken with a lot of fibre.

So quick points --> get a mammogram for breast to rule out Cancer and usg abdomen to c the kidneys and the Gall bladder along with the pancreas, a plain urine exam for blood in urine. medicines as above.

hope it is useful.
