Bump Under Nipple?

When I picked up my daughter tonight to burp her after a feeding, I felt a hard little bump on her chest. When I lifted her shirt to see where it was, I found it was directly under her nipple. The other nipple does not have this problem. Can't tell, but it looks like the affected nipple might be inverted? Should I be concerned? Should I take her to the pediatrician to have it checked out??

So I guess I will follow up for all those curious. Took my daughter to the pediatrician and she said the lump was normal. Said that since I am breastfeeding, the lump is probably due to a change in my hormones passes to her. She said as long as there is no discharge from the nipple, it is ok. Might be there a couple months, but ok. My advice to anyone out there who found the same thing, if it worries you, have the pediatrician check it out. Better for peace of mind and better to get an "all clear" report now vs. a bad report later.
