Hi I have a scab on my nipple and I have also found a lump under my arm pit on the same side should I be concerned?

That's a lymph node: Whatever injury occurred to the breast is 'known' to your immune system - as evidenced by the 'activation' of the lymph node. That is a garrison of your immunity- and it likely is responding. I would show this to a doctor who can make sure it's nothing more serious.
