So I was laying in bed tonight and I was doing a breast check (my mother is a survivor of breast cancer)and I noticed that there was this lump. I had to press down to really feel it but when I did, it hurt. I had my sister and mother feel it and they both thought it was a bone, but I'm not sure. I am 16 years old, if that helps.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
If its hard and fixed to underlying tissue then you should go for ultrasound breast followed by excisional biopsy.
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.
Take care

People with chest wall tumors may have a mass, lump or swelling in the chest with or without pain or discomfort. This disease can be symptom-free. Or you can suffer from a cough that doesn't go away, chest pain and/or trouble breathing. People with malignant pleural effusion experience shortness of breath. If you're suffering from this condition kindly see a doctor.
