    this doesn't sound at all like a breast cancer symptom; it sounds like you've had a small infection - a pimple on your areola. I'd suggest applying some antibiotic, keeping it clean and dry, and leaving it alone. If it seems to be getting infected again, best to see a doctor for some advice and treatment. Good luck - PJH
