YaGottaTakeYourLumps: Calm down!!We all get lumps.Most of them go away and that's that.The worst you can do is fiddle with it all the time.Get a mental picture of it then leave it alone for a week,repeat if same,etc.With increasing size, tenderness, consistency,etc it will need examination. Also if it lasts a long time say,3 months).There's a lot to it, but most of the time it's minor, assuming you're healthy otherwise
