Lump on nipple of breast, pain after squeezing white head on nipple. Any ideas?

It looks like I have a lump or pimple on the nipple of my right breast. I am 55 and I am still getting my period. My breast starting aching about 4-5 days ago. I have ignored it until right now. When I first looked on the side of the nipple, I thought I saw a whitehead, I squeezed it and I just caused more pain. Nothing came out. Do you have any ideas?

Above features are mostly suggestive of local abscess due to bacterial infection. However, you need proper clinical examination & mammography to rule out the nature of lump. Kindly, visit to your gynecologist.
