Concern: is warranted. There are a surprising number of breast structures that can get infections. They grow. If treated while the area is small, you don't even need slight poking of the area and antibiotics treat it. If a bit larger can require opening the area with a needle (popping a pimple), larger still can require minor surgery and leave a scar. Really bad can require hospitalization.

Yes: This is a classic description of fibrocystic breast. The breasts are fatty tissue and glands. The glands can respond to changes in the cycle by forming small cysts (lumps) that are often tender. They tend to come and go with the cycle. You can minimize these by reducing or eliminating caffeine and/or taking Vitamin E
