Evaluate it: It's not normal to feel this way. You need to get this evaluated. see your doctor. To worry or not depends on what is causing this symptom.

Probably fine: Usually lumps should be checked out. If you have had a specific lump for 15 years and it has not changed in character or size, it is probably OK. If you do notice any changes, have it checked out immediately. Hope that helps.
