Depending on how extensive and where the "benign breast mass" was in relation to the xiphoid, scar tissue from suture placement can engender small "lumps" under the skin. If the mass was not located in the area of your breast as described, ask your gyn physician for an exam and possible digital mammogram to be more certain.
