    Laura, it could be an ingrown hair, an infection in a milk duct... There's no telling exactly what it is, though it does sound like an infection. Breast cancer doesn't usually appear as a sore with pus and blood. Any infection that lingers should be treated, so best make a doctor's appointment and get it taken care of, OK? Good luck - PJH
