462083_tn?1206620211 Pimples on the breast can occur, just like on skin anywhere else. You should do a breast self exam and report any abnormal features that you might notice - a breast lump, skin changes or nipple discharge etc. If the pimple does not resolve in a few days consult your physician for a clinical evaluation. Let us know if you have any other doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing and what does your physician advise. Goodluck.
Avatar_n_tn About a week and a half ago I started to develope a lump, redness, and pain just outside the crease of my right thigh. Over the weekend it progressively got larger, developed a whitehead, and started draining pus/blood on its own (DO NOT try pushing, sqeezing or poking with a needle on your own).During this time it was VERY painful and hard to walk, sit or get comfortable. Once that finished, there was blood, lots of it, but this is normal (I of course did not know this and began to panic).
Avatar_m_tn Hello, It can be a boil, abscess or carbuncle. A boil, also referred to as a skin abscess, is a localized infection deep in the skin. Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. If there are recurrent boils, then please get your blood sugar levels estimated.
Avatar_n_tn It is true that herpes can go dormant for a period of time... but 9 years? Unless something has changed. It might be a cause from the minor surgery? It could also be a rubbing thing? Have you done anything different, detergent? etc? If it doesn't change, I'd go see someone about it just in case.
Avatar_f_tn Since you are diabetic,there is a strong possibility that the lump under your breast could be a boil or an abscess which can appear in your breast as well as on any other part of your body.Whether it's an infection or something else, you need to have it checked out by your doctor soon so that it can be treated . All the best..
Avatar_n_tn had the same situation needed to go to er because the location of the boils caused my eyes to swell and close I was put on antibiotic levaquin it reduced swelling but my picking the boil or possibly the size of the boil left ice pick scars on face I only had one recurring outbreak since then so I decided to do a 10 day fast with only lemon diluted water red cayenne pepper and maple syrup (a master cleanse) then I built up my immune system by elimininated cane sugar, white bread, junk foods
Avatar_n_tn Hello, It can be a boil or cyst. The other possibility is of an abscess breast. It can be a breast benign or malignant growth(less likely) but a mammogram and FNAC( fine needle aspiration cytology) are required to confirm the diagnosis. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar_m_tn I have developed a mass near areola of my right breast in last few days. I has an intense pain and I am not able to understand what it is. I an 37 year old normal lean male with some hypothyroidism from last few years. Can any body help what it is. The lump is very painful. It should not be an infection as I a have no fever like symptoms.
Avatar_f_tn If you don't have any of these symptoms,the it's most probably an infection. (pimple,abscess, boil) that can appear on the breast like on any other part on the body.You could apply warm compresses and see how it goes.If it doesn't get better in a few days,have your Doctor take a look at it for adequate treatment.
Avatar_n_tn I was constantly reading the internet about breast abscess. I then proceeded only two days after my minor surgery, began to start poking, squeezing, and pushing on my breast. I was doing this approximately every 2 minutes, so I noticed after everytime I did it my breast became more sore. But I noticed when I would stop doing it the soreness would go away, but when I started it again, it became sore again. So I was still FREAKING OUT!
Avatar_f_tn Hi, This sounds like an infection and my advice to you would be to seek medical attention to have this abscess or boil lanced and treated with antibiotics. Please call for an appointment to see your family doctor or a dermatologist, (the sooner the better) before this infection gets worse. In the meantime you can take some over the counter pain medication.Just keep the site clean,put a sterile bandage on it and do not apply any medication unless prescribed by your doctor when you'll see him.
364382_tn?1300245899 You should see your Doctor or a dermatologists for an accurate evaluation.If it's an abscess or a boil it needs to be lanced and treated with an antibiotic to clear it up. In the meantime try to apply warm compresses and see if it helps...but please have the doctor look at it. Take care..
Avatar_n_tn you should make an appointment with your personal Physician for an examination. You state this lump is above the breast .... it could be an abscess but I'm not sure what you mean by "above" the breast. I might be an enlarged lymph node and that could indicate an infection but this warrants a hands-on examination and some type of treatment. Regards .....
Avatar_f_tn If after a week or two, it doesn't get any better,please consult your doctor, because if it's a boil or an abscess,it needs to be treated. I don't think that this pimple has anything to do with breast cancer,but as you well know,we can only guess about this lesion and it's much safer to have your doctor or a dermatologist take a look at it for a correct diagnosis. I hope that it's really nothing to worry about. Best wishes...
Avatar_f_tn Hi, It sounds pretty much that you have an infection. An abscess or a boil can be very painful and I am surprised that you waited that long to have this infectious lump checked out by your doctor. You will certainly need to have it drained and treated with an antibiotic to clear it up. Best wishes...

Avatar_n_tn A boil, also referred to as a skin abscess, is a localized infection deep in the skin. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Boil on buttocks is usually due to plugged sweat glands that become infected or by an ingrown hair.
Avatar_f_tn Hi, This could be a sebaceous cyst, an abscess or a boil, but without a doctor examination and having some type of testing, “if needed”, it's impossible for anyone to tell you exactly what this lump near your sternum may represent. All I can say is that most breast lumps, in your age group, are harmless especially when pain is involved. I wouldn’t worry about breast cancer, but I am glad you made an appointment to see your Doctor soon so that treatment can start .
1274797_tn?1270846986 I am 27 yrs old and i have a lump under my right breast for the past 4 weeks i subscribed an antibiotic to clear it up but it never did, its a lump the size of a small grape, its red and right around the entire area is red, the rednes spred out a little more in 2 days and just on the outside was purple, it is still painful, i went back to my doctor yesturday and she was suprised that it didn't clear up so she e-mailed a referral to the hospital, this morning the pain was gone and the redness su
Avatar_n_tn I have similar problems, but the lump and the pain feels like it is just underneath my left breast. I went to the breast clinic, and they did a breast examination, and determined that I do not have breast cancer. For some reason, I don't believe the doctor. I have had this pain for many months now, and would really like to know what it is. My left breast has one spot, on the side under my armpit where it hurts.
Avatar_f_tn have been having some disconfort. my question is can a boil turn to cancer? the boil is located inside the breast not on it.
Avatar_f_tn Hello, It can be a boil, abscess or infected cyst. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head.
Avatar_m_tn It could be local infection, may not be a lymph node bit a boil or abscess or there may be abscess in breast or even a lump in breast that needs to be investigated. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar_m_tn Hi, Yes, this sounds like an infection,it could be a boil or an abscess and your Doctor will be able to treat it. Normally breast cancer does not present this way. Hoping you'll find relief pretty soon. Take care...
Avatar_m_tn Hi,if the lump is on the breast and painful,it could be an abscess...boil..etc..The skin of the breast is like any part of the skin in the body where these infections can happen.. and has to be treated either by draining it or by antibiotics.A lump" IN "the breast has to be examined by a doctor whether painful or not,to make sure that there is nothing serious.No, cancer cells do not escape from cysts when a biopsy is done.

Avatar_m_tn The tender lump on your armpit can be a beginning localized infection like an abscess. There is a condition known as hidradenitis suppurativa that can involve the sweat glands of the axilla. This is a type of localized infection and is very similar to a boil. I agree with you that cancer is not common in your age group, particularly breast cancer. You should have yourself seen by a doctor for evaluation. If it is indeed a localized infection, appropriate antimicrobial can be given. Regards.
