red bump on left breast-painful to touch

okay so my left breast- i just noticed this morning has a red bump on it and looks like a scab? Could it be irritated? It's painful to squeeze or touch. what oculd be wrong with it?

Dear LysK:  Skin on the breast is like skin anywhere on the body and is subject to a variety of abnormalities.  If this does not go away or becomes worse, you should have your doctor take a look at it.  Without evaluating the breast, we cannot speculate on the cause of this bump.
