First off, change the password to the account and make it very difficult to guess by using upper and lowercase letters and also use numbers. This may help to ward off any outside access to the account. There are computer programs that go through and try every variation and combination of words in the dictionary to try and break it. This software is capable of trying thousands of passwords a second. The next step would be to change the security questions.
Sometimes, when and email account is compromised, it is compromised permanently. It may be wise to abandon the account, but first see if the problem is solved by tightening up security. It may also be helpful to notify Yahoo of the breach.
