You don't state your age and that would always be of help. If this has been going on for 6 months I think you should see your Dr. for a clinical breast exam. Most times women aren't really all that good at self breast exam unless they have been taught by a clinician. There are several conditions that don't involve an actual breast lump so I believe an appointment with your Dr. is in order at this point.     Regards ....
