Welcome to ehealthforum,
The identity of the lump can be best found after a proper examination. If needed a biopsy might be done to look for the cell type.
Discuss with your gynecologist/healthcare provider about this and go ahead with a detailed examination, investigations including a scan to see what is going on. You might need to be put on hormonal medications to regulate your periods.
