Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
it sounds like mastitis infection of your left nipple or breast.
you should see a doctor and see if you need a course of antibiotics to help clear up an infection
mastitis can occur if a small amount of bacteria gets into the breast through the nipple skin, through a skin pore or something.
your symptoms don't sound like breast cancer, more like mastitis
do you have a doctor you can see who can give you a course of antibiotics to see if that helps?
