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.
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).
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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!
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.
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..
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 .....
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...
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.
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...

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.
have been having some disconfort. my question is can a boil turn to cancer? the boil is located inside the breast not on it.
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.
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!

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.
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.
Under arm pain and swelling can be due to folliculitis, boil, abscess or swollen lymph node. Clean with antiseptic lotions. Take a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatories. Apply a local antibiotic at the site of ear pierce. The other possibility is breast cancer. This can also cause pain and a swollen lymph node in the arm pit. Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
It's not an abscess or boil. It doesn't seem infected and isn't red. It just looks like raised skin, it's very small, about the size of a straw hole.
No pain, I just kept an eye on it. 2 days ago, the white pimple turned into an elevated red, boil-like pimple., with 2 small white spots in the middle. Some white discharge has come out. I went to my ob/gyn, who prescribed a cream for abcesses...she told me to return in a week.She bougth up Paget breast disease, but though it was highly unlikely because I am 40, with no history of breast cancer. I have no excema, no rash....could it be Paget disease? Thanks!
My Mother has developed strange blister like areas in her armpit and one under her breast. They appear like a small boil and are very dark in color. A small head appears and they burst expelling a dark murkey liquid followed by blood. She says they are extremely tender before they rupture and after they do they look like a darkly bruised patch of skin. The bruising will go away, but it leaves a scar behind resembling a burn.
