Could be mastitis ... you need to see a doctor. Meanwhile you could phone the NHS helpline.

Does sound like an abcess. See doc in the morning. You probably need antibiotics.

does sound rather like mastitus - go to your gp in the monring and get it checked out, because you may need ABs, and the earlier the better. Don't fret too much and try a nice hot bath tp relieve the pain.
