Hello. Thank you for writing.

There is no way for us to know what this is. You need to be seen by a doctor. If the medical staff at this place you went to will not help you, go someplace else. A breast surgeon would be the best option as this may need to be removed. It's likely a benign growth, but no one can know this unless it's evaluated, removed and biopsied. Even if looking at it the doctor can tell it's benign, it's growing and hurting you so it needs to be addressed.
