My breast has a boil under it. Is this a sign of cancer?

My breast has a boil under it but I don't see any signs of redness of my nipple or skin at all. But the boil is like m&m chocolate . It's round. Pls help me to understand it. Am so worried. Thank u. I went for mammogram two years ago but it says my lumps are just cystic. Pls. Advice me. Thank you so much.

Hi,
If what you have is really a boil,typically it could resolve on it's own,but  there are special situations in which boils need to be medically treated.
If you are not sure of what it is,then it's better to show it to your doctor because this  lump could be anything but it should be examined and perhaps tested to make sure it's harmless.
Best wishes...
