I am still waiting for my appointment to visit must doctor but today I was poking at my limp and some bloddy pus a very little bit came out of a pore near it. My lump is really close to the skin so maybe it is just a abscess or cyst after all! I felt so relieved. I tried to force more out but couldn't. Sorry I know this is gross but it's a good sign right? I don't think tumors have pus in them do they?

I don't think they have pus so no. But that seems superficial to me and not related to the lump maybe.  So eventhough the lump is close to the skin i would think if it was a cyst it would come out of the lump not a pore close to it, maybe a pore on it.  But i don't know really.

It's always best to get the changes in our breasts checked out.  I'm glad you have an appointment so they can check both issues out.  My advice is to try not to fool with it until the doctor sees it.  Forcing "a squeeze" may cause other issues, including infection.  When is your appointment?

Hi - I agree with everyone else - keep your hands away from it. They may want to test the fluid and you want to have some there - when they have to squeeze and manipulate your breast to get fluid it hurts like heck!!
