In brief: Breast lump

At your age, and with cyclic symptoms, the overwhelming probability is that there is a benign etiology.
However, any lump, as well as the skin changes around the nipple, should be evaluated by your doc to make sure. If the lump turns out to be simply a benign cyst, it can be aspirated with a needle so it doesn't bother you any more.
