There is a reddish hard lump near my areola on my breast. I have never seen this before and it is painful to touch. Is this common?

I could be just a cyst or something more serious, If doesn't resolve in a week I would show your doctor

In brief: No

What you described suggests infection of a hair follicle resulting in a boil.
It would be prudent to see your doctor or visit an urgent care center.

In brief: Common yes

This may be fairly common but it still means you should see your doctor. A small infected duct or such entities needs to be treated .
