HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is understandable to be concerned regarding any lump in the breast. At your age, the lump is likely benign (not cancerous) but this should definitely be ruled out by an ultrasound or mammogram.

It is possible since it is a recurring lesion, that it may be a cyst which is a sac that collects fluid.
Cysts can sometimes become inflamed or infected. Using anti inflammatory pain medication such as cataflam, ibuprofen or naproxen may help.

I hope this helps
