    Wow, I'm so sorry - you've got a lot of health challenges going on! I think it's probably a good idea to go to the doctor and have this looked at. Any breast changes should be taken seriously; the doctor can tell you what this is, and what to do about it. Good luck - PJH

    Hi - what you have described sounds like an ingrown hair, cyst or boil.  They start off looking like a pimple, then turn red, swollen and sore due to possible infection and from attempting to pop it.  When you squeezed or picked at it, the capillaries broke causing the spot to become reddened.  While it is likely nothing, I would suggest having it checked out by a physician because you have other health conditions that factor into eveything.  You doctor can do an ultrasound to tell if it is solid or fluid filled, and then prescribe a course of antibiotics if it turns out to be somethng that is fluid filled.  But only your doctor will be able to let you know for sure if this is cancerous or not.  Besides, why sit there sore and worried when he can put you at ease!

    Best of luck to you.  Please keep us posted!
