Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Need 2 C Ur Doctor: Most women's breasts are "lumpy-bumpy", especially after pregnancies +/- breastfeeding. This is because most of the breast consists of fat; the islands of milk-producing tissue tend to consolidate and change in response to hormonal changes.

Ask your surgeon: It is hard to know from your question if the lump is what was biopsied (to see what it was) or if the lump is from the biopsy procedure. It would be unusual for a hematoma from a biopsy to persist from may to september, but if the biopsy was done to see what was in a pre-existing lump and there was no other treatment, it would still be there.
