your problem seems to be a breast abscess, which means an infection which can be easily treated with a course of antibiotics. however in order to be absolutely sur, i would advice you to visit a physician in person, to rule out other possibilities and for a course of antibiotics if it is confirmed to be an abscess. some times it may b necessary to drain an abscess by making a small cut on the skin by the surgeon.
hope you get well soon
