I read your question completely and have understood it well enough..

Please note..

1. The symptoms that you are explaining goes in favor of Breast Abscess.

2. Severe pain plus signs of inflammation definitely points towards such pathological process.

3. Please, get an Breast Usg, this can tell what exactly lies inside.

Hope this helps you..
