Lumps

08/03/2011

Question:

About 5 months ago I woke up and there was a lump the size of a small grape between my breasts, I first thought it was a pimple so I tried to pop it but it wouldn`t pop so I grabbed a needle and poked it a it burst out with blood there was then a piece of skin hanging so I pulled it off. it hurt for a couple of day because raw skin would rub against my bra after a week or so I looked a there was just a hole where the lump had been I thought it would go away but its still red and now there is a huge hole between my breast, does this mean I have cancer or something I just want to know what it is or if I need to talk to my doctor
