May need evaluation: Cervical cancer comes usually from hpv related dysplasia and is not related to breast cancer. Breast cancers would not usually present as pimples, though lesions of the deeper ducts can cause bloody drainage from the nipple and should be evaluated by a breast or general surgeon if that is the case. Mastitis and breast abscess are common conditions and can be treated with drainage or antibiotics.

Go to see MD: You should see your doctor to get yourself checked. Mammogram an ultrasound of the breast likely be needed to further evaluate the breast lump. It may be a cyst/fibrocystic disease of the breast- however due to your significant history of cancer in the family- it is definitely needed to be checked. Also discuss with your mother - the need for her to get a genetic testing for brca 1 and 2.
