In brief: Risk is VERY low!

Any breast lump can be benign or cancerous.
Important things are: has it grown, changed, gotten harder, deformed, dimpled the skin, made the skin over it red or swollen, or become associated with lumps in your armpit? At age 28, the chance of a lump being cancer is about 1/10,000 -- which is NOT zero. Please see a breast specialist for an exam, and likely an ultrasound. Good luck to you!
