Question White swollen bump on breast...what is it??

Just curious if anyone could shed some light on my situation.
About a week or so ago, I noticed a tiny white bump on my breast, its not on the nipple but just off to the right of my right breast. It's almost like it should be able to be squeezed, but when I tried, nothing happened, so I left it be.
Sunday I was getting in the shower and I noticed when I looked in the mirror that the area around the white bump was very very red, forming a large circle around the white bump and it was very swollen, almost like its filled with fluid. I can feel the fluid around the tiny white bump if I feel it.
Over the past few days its been getting bigger, the red area around the white bump that is, and its getting more swollen and its very sore, to the point where sheets in the bed hurt to touch while I'm sleeping.
The white bump is the center of the redness, and it doesnt seem to be getting any bigger, its just the red around thats continuing to grow. I've had these tiny white bumps before but they usually went away, but this was doesn't seem to be doing so.
If anyone has any info or insight that could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Meg.

Meg, at first i thought you were describing a pimple. Like a zit that you get on your face that gets infected and hurts, but i don't know it sounds more serious and i think if it's still there you shoult get it checked out.

Maybe a boil or a fluid cyst.
