Malignancy on long term treatment often leads to fatigue. All the symptoms mentioned by you can also be the adverse effects of chemotherapy. Anyway, hard lump always be evaluated carefully. Size, progression, fixity to underlying or overlying structures should be elicited clinically. In case of suspicion tissue diagnosis may be obtained. Consult your oncologist.
