In fact small nodes can be felt here in many people and are meaningless.

If it is not more than a centimeter, then there should be no concern.

Any irritation or cut in the area might do it.

Simply have your doctor examine this, and your breasts of course...rarely men get breast cancer...but I would not expect this.
