What is the treatment of lump on breast ?

I had a small lump under my right breast several months ago that was very sore. It seemed to get better. But then about a week ago I noticed that the same spot was very tender and seemed to be oozing and bleeding occasionally. It is very painful at most all times, but especially when I wear a bra. What should I do?

This must have been a sebaceous cyst . It got regressed with time , to reappear with infection.
Nothing much to worry.
It is already open. Get an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines. If required go for excision in-toto.
