I'm 26 and I noticed that I had a dark spot on my right breast me being me I popped it and blood came out and now have a dip there have I done damage?

A typical sebaceous cyst or a pimple is not going to leave a 'dip' as you describe, so I think you should have this examined by a doctor. Likely okay, but definitely get it checked out. ...Read more

Small lump: As described, it sounds like you had a localized abscess or type of localized infection (with the redness, palpable lump, and warmth).
