Does the cancer lump burst at last stages?

There are many different types of breast cancer and different ways and speeds in which they spresd. A breast cancer does not "burst" as such but if left without treatment it will eventually ulcerate and spread throughout all the surrounding tissue. If left too long it can affect the skin and will look like a scab or mole. If left even longer, the area will eventually simply rot. There is a possibility that when a cancer is removed, if the outer margins are too close to the surgical excision, the cancer cells will spread to the surrounding tissue.

What happenns if breast cancer goes untreated?

Indeed, if breast cancer symptoms are left unnoticed or ignored, then the chances of the infected area spreading to organs of other parts of the body are inevitable.
