You will have to consult a doctor for an examination and mammogram. Breast cancer always has to be excluded. It is possible that you merely have a fibrotic change of your breast tissue, which is not dangerous. If you have injured your breast, a hard lump can also occur. It is of utmost importance to consult your doctor.
