Boils/Spots on the breast

Hi and thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my question and put my mind at ease. I have had a spot or boil on my left breast for about 4 months now. When I squeeze it, blood and puss come out and it is quite painful when I squeeze it. It is only painful when I squeeze it. Now it seems to be open and oozing some clear liquid and there is a sore red line coming from it now. Can you advise me of any treatment I may need for this or if it my be symptomatic of something more sinister? I have had a borderline phyllodes tumor removed from my other breast around the same time this started and I am 34 yrs old.

Dear hotstuff:  If there is a "spot" on the breast that drains pus and blood when squeezed, the concern would be infection.  Without evaluation, we cannot speculate on what this might be.  Our recommendation is to have this evaluated, possibly by the surgeon who removed your phyllodes tumor.
