It sounds as a breast bone tumor, most likely benign one, since it took 2 years to change its size.
However, it is very important see your physician to get evaluated for the right diagnosis.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be fibroma or lipoma.
But as its increasing in size,so its better to consult physician.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
