Alina, this sounds like a skin issue of some sort. External lumps on the breast aren't a typical breast cancer symptom. However, if this has appeared suddenly - i.e., you haven't had it for years - it qualifies as a breast change, and you should see a doctor about it, OK? Only a doctor can verify what it is, and treat it, if necessary. Good luck - PJH
