Breast lump I always heard cysts can be moved?

I am a 21 year old female. I recently found a small pea sized lump near to top of my right nipple. I waited a week and decided to go to the ER because I was concerned since it never went away. The ER told me it was cysts and then gave me pain meds for the pain I felt on the side of my breast. The lump itself does not hurt. Will not move, like it's implanted in the tissue of my breast. I always heard cysts can be moved and typically hurt. I don't have insurance so that's why I went to the ER. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Also have had migraines. Some dizziness and blurred vision. I have had a swollen lymph node in my neck for about a month. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but that's just some symptoms I've had.

Breast Lump
I would go to a walk-in clinic, or if you can find a free clinic. You never want to mess around with a breast lump. Added to that, your swollen lymph node and migraines, you DEFINITELY should have a check-up. Check in your state for State sponsored health insurance, for example if you have been turned down for health insurance because of a pre-existing condition, many states offer PCIP or Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan. Can you get insurance through your school or work?

I'm trying to get insurance right now because of the lump. So I can be seen by a doctor. It's stressing me out bad. When I went to the ER for the swollen lymph node, the doctor felt my neck and had me show him where I felt the lump in my neck. Almost as if he just told me it was my tog node to get me out of the hospital. When I went the second time for a cough and sore throat I had that doctor look at it, she felt I guess where the lymph node should have been and didn't feel anything. Once again she had me show her where I felt the lump and said nothing else about it. I don't know it's bean shaped, I looked it up and it said it had to be the lymph node but it's not placed where the doctors keep checking. I'm worried about my health because I am so skinny compard to the rest of my family and I just want it all behind me. I've looked for free mammograms in Kentucky, I live in independence, by Florence and I can't find anything as of now. The insurance thru my work is costly and they act like they don't want me to have it? I called a place to try to get it by myself also. They are supposed to cal back today. I never knew being so young I had to worry about breast lumps, it's just driving me crazy.
