Thank for choosing HCM, Now stop squeezing or tempering the nipple area it may causes further trauma to under laying tissues, and microvascular system,, this could be fibroadenoma with secondary infection, mammography required to get it confirmed, (fine needle aspiration will also be indicated for histopathological diagnosis), have nice day.

Any lump or abnormal discharge from breasts should not be neglected and should be evaluated.
You may require Mammography of breasts.
Consult your Gynaec and get your both breasts thoroughly examined.
After examination and investigations she will advice accordingly.
Ok and take care.
