Brief Answer:
Ultrasound and biopsy has to be done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Cyst can rather become infected and turn into an abscess. It is also possible to have a cancer which may look like an inflammation (inflammatory breast cancer). That is why, should visit your doctor as soon as possible. Ultrasound and biopsy should be done.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
