It's unclear as to the actual location of the lump. If it's within the chest wall, an X-Ray of the lung isn't enough of an evaluation. A physician would palpate it& advise you of the diagnosis or whether a surgeon is best to advise you about it. Since you're experiencing pain, I recommend a reevaluation by a physician or surgeon.
