Lumps in right arm pit, pain on pressing. Family history of breast cancer. Cure?

I am a 31 year old female. Last year my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer . A couple of days ago I found two small lumps in my right armpit. Both are small. The one furthest from my breast hurts a lot. The one closest to my breast is larger. It hurts a bit when I press on it (like a bruise or a pimple about to form). What are the chances of this being cancerous given my family history?

General Surgeon 's  Response
hi mam,
Breast cancers do tend to occur with a family history.But your swelling need not be a malignany only.
There are various conditions causing such swellings specially in reproductive age.
Hence you need to get it evaluated by a general surgeon to confirm the cause
Take care
