I have a lump in chest looks like a pimple, had shingles

I have a lump on my chest , more or less central but a little to the left side, just above the nipple line. It is sore to the touch. It is kind of like a big pimple but a little bigger. Noticed it a few days ago. Is it something I should be worried about. About 1-2 months ago I had shingles , which seemed to heal pretty quick with medication. I am 42yr old male, overweight and smoker. Should I try to pop it? Thanks
