In brief: There is no

way to determine what it is without an evaluation.
Call your doc, you will likely need a mammogram and ultrasound for the initial imaging evaluation. You have a personal history of breast cancer so you are at increased risk, but even if you weren't, any new mass needs to be evaluated.
