Painful boil on breast, redness, pain on touching, previous boils dried on their own. Serious underlying condition?

Hi, i am 30 years old. i have a painful boil on my right breast . it was looking like it would burst, but seems like it will not. a lot of area around that has turned red and its painful to touch. i had a similar one on my breast a month ago, but it burst and wasnt messy at all. i had a couple of boils on my right side (near the breast), they were painful but dried off on its own. what should i do? is this indicative of something serious?

Actually you should be examined by ultrasound with mammography to be done to exclude possible tumors (there can be malignant or benign breast tumors). It seems to me that you have under-skin inflammatory process (pustule or even carbuncle which recur). There are can be some problems with your immune system and hormonal production. Both should be inspected. Avoid much sunlight and be careful to your diet (eat more fruit and vegetables, especially a garlic and grapefruit). Smoking usually provokes such problems and bad water quality.
