Common Questions and Answers about Lump after abscess

lump

hi. i've been to my doctor last, last week and found out that my lump on my left breast preferably on the areolar part was an abscess..they drained the pus, and i went through GSCS..thank God they found no microorganisms, no growth after 7hrs. of incubation, i've taken antibiotics and everything.. But my worry here is that, the lump appeared again, it's not painful anymore but pus is still present. So, i drained it and applied first aid.
I had an abscess in my right breast 10 years ago and it left a little lump after it healed. Two weeks ago I developed an abscess in the same spot. My GP recommended a week of antibiotics (Augmentin) and it started to drain on its own two days back. I feel a thickened area which hasn't gone down. Should I be worried? The abscess continues to drain slowly and I have covered it with sterilized gauze. Please help.

This only numbs the pain slightly and wears off quite quickly. Ive also got a swollen left side of my face and a lump on my gum. I know I need to see a dentist and probably get antibiotics but the problem is its christmas day and I wont be able to seek help for several days - possibly a week or more and I cant cope with this pain. Any advice on what I can do at home in the meantime to make it bearable?
Food woud get caught between the two teeth so I avoided chewing on that side since that's the only time it really hurt. Over a year ago I noticed a lump in my jaw, under where the tooth was. But I never really had a toothache, maybe just a couple times and very short lived, like a couple hours. Is that "normal"? I had the tooth pulled yesterday. The dentist said that now that the tooth is gone, the lump will go away too.
I am 42 year-old, I had a cyst near the nipple of my right breast and was aspirated after making a mamo and ultrasound and was diagnosed by the pathologist as an abscess. I was on antibiotic for 10 days. The lump almost disappeared but pain persisted and became sometimes stronger specially around the nipple. I went yesterday to the doctor again and made another ultrasound and he told me that there is a scar tissue left and I have to wait 2 months for a follow-up by an ultrasound.
Two weeks after the 2nd sugery, she flet the paint and lump or swollen around her viginal area again (she is still taking her antibiotic at the time). Went back to doctor, he stick his finger in both areas and didn't feel anything. My concern is if this is a normal process for this type of abscess or should she be concerned about other diseases. You guidance and feedback are greatly appreciated.
I was just researching how common vaginal abscesses are, and this discussion board came up and I thought I might share my story in hopes it may give at least somebody somewhat of a clue what is going on when they notice a lump on either side of the clitoris, I noticed I was a sore down there, after getting trying to find out what might be causing it, I noticed a lump the size a little smaller than a golf ball.
For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
) After feeling the scalple slicing open my abscess, then the doctor found a previous abscess under that one and had to slice it open as well. After all of this, it was time to begin packing the wound with this stringgy gauze filled with antibiotic by using a small pair of sissors to do it. I felt everything! It felt like he was poking the abscess with the sharp sissor and then dragging it around the inside edges of the wound. Another very painful and tramatic experience!
If the lump is near your tail bone then it could be a pilonidal sinus. This can recur even after surgery. Proper care would be needed and good personal hygiene maintained to prevent recurrence. Otherwise this could be a cold abscess caused by tuberculosis. This can also recur if tuberculosis is not treated. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage without examination. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
(1) I appreciate your wonderful medical help, but I am very worried about the lump you observed. (2) I require a definitive diagnosis as to the nature of this lump, in writing. If you are unable to provide me with this diagnosis, please refer me to a physician who will. (3) I would like to have this lump removed, and would appreciate referral to a physician who could do so. If you get no satisfactory results in thirty days, find another physician. Kepp us posted.
I recently found a large breast lump which after a mammogram and ultrasound was determined to be a breast abscess. It was asprirated, I was treated with antibotics. I still have breast pain after 4 weeks. I had another ultrasound which indicates 2 cyst in the same area. The cysts are not perfectly round. Should I have a biopsy?
It may take about two weeks time for the antibiotics to work after taking the last dose. However if after 2 weeks the lump is still there and your breast is still hard, your GP could prescribe one more course of antibiotics or may refer you to a Breast Specialist to confirm the diagnosis of a breast abscess which is usually done using an ultrasound .
Due to a tooth abscess, my cheek swelled out. An endodontist drained it and put my on a course of anti-biotics telling me it had reached a dangerous stage. (Prior to this the other side of my mouth had a gum abscess - and left untreated. My face and neck blew up and then went down without a problem) A week later after the drainage, the swelling is down by about 90% but there remains a hard lump in my cheek, and the surface area of my cheek over it is numb, also affecting my mouth on that side.
Hi, For the past 17 months i have been getting absess' all over my stomach upper thighs and bottocks. They occur one after the other starting as the tiniest little pimple, The surface stays the same but underneath the skin it becomes hard red and infected filing withpuss.

Root canal failed and i developed an abscess on gum. Dentist at the time said best to leave it. Several years passed, new dentist decided to redo the root canal and perform an apiectomy. One day after stitches came out the familiar pimple was back. Since then i have lived with this infection, every so often i have to forcibly drain it to reduce the swelling and pain.

I don't have any rotten teeth or fillings and after wearing a brace and looking after my teeth really well I am so upset! The only possible reason for this abscess that I can think of is that about a year ago, my front tooth got the corner chipped off. Please respond asap... I am a worrier!!

Kiki, Abscesses will usually open up on their own eventually if you don't have them drained. Not every lump will necessarily become an abscess. Abscesses are usually very inflamed and red, they fill with fluid, and then slowly push through to the surface. The skin thins, and then they burst open - kind of like a HUGE blister. Some of the women here have had success wtih having their abscesses drained. I have never had them drained...I just let them run their course...
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of lump. Possibilities that may need to be considered include cyst, abscess, scar formation etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Hi! Even after an abscess or an infected cyst is drained, some swelling remains for a few days. This usually goes back to normal on its own. If it becomes painful, it means there is persisting underlying infection. Please show the swelling to your doctor at the next visit. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
/ball underneath. The lump underneath is tiny and moveable. In fact, if I move it around, puss seems to secrete from the "pimple". I'm 31 years old, no history of any type of cancer in my family, I do not have children and I am not pregnant. My question is...could this be cancer or a pre-cancerous condition? Are cancerous lumps ever above the surface, and do they secrete puss?
last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
Ok I've had this abscess on my gums for 2 years and was unable to treat it cause I didn't have insurance, but now I do and it's getting treated but this is the problem, I ate a m@m and right after I ate it I drained the abscess like I always do but when I did it another lump showed up on my outside gums causing me lots of pain for hours.
A black bump on the chest can be a keloid, mole, birth mark, wart, abscess or some allergic eruption. Keloids occur in skin after surgical incisions, traumatic wounds, vaccination sites, burn injuries. Keloids often run in families. They most often on the chest, back, shoulders, and earlobes. Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules, and can vary from pink to flesh-colored or red to dark brown in color and usually turn unsightly.
