That would explain it - without testosterone, you are in effect still on ADT. It may be that a change in some other meds has exacerbated this.
Tamoxifen should prevent and even reverse the growth and pain you are having now (it has a 70% success rate).
It won't reverse anything that happened 13+ months ago - you've had that too long.
I suspect the breast development you had 13+ months ago was just female form fat redistribution, and I don't believe tamoxifen would do anything for that anyway. The nipple pain and lump you can feel now is breast bud development (initial formation of milk glands), and tamoxifen should stop that and reverse that recent growth.
If it wasn't for the current growing pain, another theory I might have suggested is that you could be losing the female form fat that you got earlier, and that's exposing breast bud(s) which formed earlier. But with current growing pain, and no mention of earlier growing pain, that doesn't fit what you have described.
