Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

this seems like an inflammation of the breast or an active infection which presents with redness, tender on touch , hot in the area and pain which may radiate. This may be mastitis .
You surely need to see the doctor soon , an examination will help in concluding the cause and you will need a course of antibiotics and further screening of breasts if recommended .

Wish you good health.

your welcome, only on examination we can come to conclusions, if it is an inflammation , as I feel from what you say an antibiotic will help, do not worry
