In brief: Need to get checked

If this is painful and sudden, it could be an infection or blocked milk ducts.
Even if not painful and not sudden, something is going on. It may be harder to detect a lump deep in the breast while you are full of milk. You should speak to or see your lactation consultant or provider.
