Hello.You need to see your doctor who may examine you and decide on the further course of action after examining the painful lump.The cyst may contain fluid or may be solid.Most cyst with fluid are benign and can be aspirated by your doctor preferably under ultrasound cover.The fluid/clump of cells so obtained may need to be tested(Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology).If it is a infected cyst,the pus or bloody fluid may ber tested, ,it may need aspiration and treatment with antibiotics and analgesics.A Mammography would generally not be required.There may be infection in one of the ducts and nipple,or mastitis may be there.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
