Get it checked out: If you have a cyst in the armpit and it is ruptured, then it may be inflamed and or infected. If you are having breast tenderness now, then you need to be seen by a doctor. The doctor will decide what the most appropriate treatment is for what is happening to you.

Go to doctor: It is never a good idea to needle or cut yourself. The biggest concern in doing so is infection. The doctor would clean the skin first and use sterile instruments. You also likely do not know the anatomy and could cause bleeding or damage to structures. You need to have the area reevaluated by a doctor.
