Hi - You need to go to the doctor to have this attended to. It sounds very much like an infection. Please don't delay -call and tell them your symptoms, and I'm sure they'll see you very quickly. Good luck - PJH

See a Doctor immediately.  Doesn't sound like cancer.  More like an infection of perhaps a milk duct. - Good luck.  Jan
