This is cystic acne and is only controlled by using antibiotics. You need to get to the "root" of the problem in order to stop the cycle...also ANY squeezing will spread the bacteria under the skin, causing it to continue...try to keep your hands off of your face. Instead, apply a hot compress to the lump- use a salacylic acid product to dry it up. You can also try products which contain sulphur- these will dry up the grease you describe..
But to really break the cycle, you need an antibiotic. Can you go see a dermatologist? Cystic acne is tough...and it usually does start when you are over 25...I suffered with it for ten years before I went to see a derm and finally got it under control.
