Cyct/pimple on areola

So I have had a little white bump on my areola for a few years now. It is right beside my nipple. It was about the size of a pencil eraser and never really was painful. I always tried to sqeeze but nothing would come out. Every once in awhile if I touched it, it would hurt for a second. But today there was a sharp pain right where it was so I barely touched it and white puss came out. I'll try to make this as graphicless as possible but I squeezed it and hard, cream white substance came out, and quite a bit, then just blood after that. Anyone know at all what it could be? Im pretty concerned

The skin on the breast is the same as skin on any other part of the body and subject to the same problems. This certainly sounds like a pimple from what you describe. Since you have squeezed it and the pus, etc. came out it will probably heal now. I'm amazed that you've had this for years and just now are concerned about it ...  you could ck. with your Dr. if you have any more problems or if it doesn't clear up.     Regards ....
