thanks for using health care magic

the best thing to do will be to consult a gynecologist
who will do an examination. the possible causes of the
presentation you have could be infection or abnormal
and uncontrolled growth of cells.

If the breast appears warmth, reddish and with pus,
the likely cause is an infection and an incision and drainage
will have to be done.

If it rather appears with ulcerations, or retracted nipples
and with presence of masses in your armpit, the likely
cause will be a more severe condition due to abnormal
growth of cells.

Hope this helps you,
Best regards
