Hello my name is Lizzie and for the last 2

Patient : Hello my name is Lizzie and for the last 2 days one of my breasts has gotten increasingly swollen. It hurts to touch and has gotten so big my nipple has actually stopped sticking out. It feels like there is a ball (feels hard) on the inside and is pretty swollen. Right now I have no access no a pharmacy or a doctor so I can't have it checked or get any medication. I do have aspirin and putting a heating pad on it has helped with the pain but that's it. Please help on how I can reduce/stop swelling and if it is normal or if I should be concerned. Thanks.
Symptoms:  One swollen breast, Minor pain
