What causes lump in the breast?

I had a guy I was dancing with grab my left breast and he quickly sucked on my cleavage of course I slapped him hard! I woke up the next day to a very bad hickey bruise that covered the top of my entire breast. Now the bruise is going away some but I feel a small lump round flat the size of a quarter?? The lump wasn t there before because I ve been checking that area since this happened. I m going to doctor Monday. I m 43 yrs old. Is this probably just a fat necrosis under my skin?

Hello...
from above mentioned history by you...it's quite likely to be fat necrosis.... coz it appeared following trauma...
However it can be confirmed by usg examination of breast.
