getting rid of lumps or knots? help!

I have a perpetual knot under my arm (armpit) . I haven't had it since DD was 2 weeks, but lately she's nursing alot again. Almost like she was a newborn.
Anyways, I have a small knot like the size of a pea under my arm. I massage and warm compress, it will go down buy come back again.

Any suggestions or how long does it take to go away.

Would changing the nursing position help?

Anytime I ever had lumps or knots warm compress and then nursing always helped it. Sorry no help...

I will keep trying. I just get stupidly worried. Breast cancer runs in our family so I keep an eye on any lumps.

It's just a clog tho as I can squeeze milk through my pore. *blush*
