I would advise u to go to a doctor before making a call of it being infection or cancer. Since it’s painful to begin with we are suspecting it to be of inflammatory or infective origin. Personally I don’t advise taking antibiotics just like that but can start one if u can’t meet a doctor in these times. But I would suggest u should see one soon.
