Hi - This sounds very much like a boil or, as you say, an abscess. It was probably major enough that you developed some scar tissue. It should eventually calm down and heal, from the inside out. But if it seems to be kicking up again - or if your breast seems infected (red, swollen, hot, itchy, painful), then best to see a doctor ASAP, OK? Good luck - PJH
