Continue to check: Breast cysts can come and go. You didn't say your age, but if the lump went away completely, it's not likely to be anything serious. Best to be aware of your breasts, and to see your doctor if a lump persists.

Sounds like: A possible abscess or cyst. With breast lumps, masses, lesions it is never a bad idea to get it checked out. Your situation requires an exam to fully and properly answer your question.
