My 11 year old daughter has a solid lump on the right breast. It is not movable and not aching now. What is it?

In brief: Puberty

Sounds like normal breast bud.

In brief: Breast bud

Breast budding is a notable early sign of puberty.
It may start on one side months before the other & in general starts the clock on menses for ~2 -2.5 yr down the road. Position of a spongy or rubbery mass directly beneath the nipple is key and discomfort with the process (stretch fibers) occurs in some.
