bump on areola

I am 22 years old, and have a bump on my areola.  I am about a week away from my period but it is nothing I have ever had in my life.  My milk glands are visibly swollen as well.  The enlarged gland looks similar to the worst pimple without a head you have ever seen.  The single gland is extremely tender to touch.  I have been very stressed in the passed months and have been have shorter irregular periods.  I took a pregnancy test (in the evening) and it came back negative and will take another in the morning.  Like I said it's about a week before my period.
Any thoughts?
