In brief: See you doc

Pain is not usually a symptom of breast cancer.
But any changes in your physical exam or symptoms should be brought to the attention of your doctor.

In brief: Make

Make an appointment with your doctor to get the lump assessed.
Your doctor will review your risk factors such as age, genetics, history of smoking, etc. A mammogram will likely be performed, followed by other diagnostic tests to determine if this lump is malignant (cancerous) or benign (noncancerous). Either way, it is great that you have screened your breasts. See your doctor to see what next steps your doctor recommends.
