Abscess formation breast

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess formation breast


Avatar n tn From Pubmed.. Chronic recurrent subareolar abscess formation Abstract Chronic recurrent subareolar abcedation. Chronic recurrent subareolar breast abscess is an unfrequent disease of the breast. The surgeon must be acquainted with the syndrome, otherwise it may lead to unnecessary mutilation. The condition usually develops in younger women, but has no relation with lactation. Inverted nipples are a constant finding. The evolution is a chronical one, with acute exacerbations.
Avatar f tn Bleeding from the breast can be because of infection, abscess formation or cancer. Microscopic examination of the discharge to look for blood cells and any abnormal cells and mammography will help make the diagnosis. Consult your Doctor. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn The problem with artificially produced cavities such as what you have is the possibility to accumulate fluid and hence can predispose to cyst or seroma formation as well as abscess formation. However, most operations in the breast would only transiently produce these cavities but should later be completely healed. If persistent cavities persist, I suggest that you have this re-evaluated by the surgeon to avert future problems. Regards.
Avatar n tn The one surgical option would be a ductal lavage performed after finding the plugged duct which would prevent the formation of an abscess. Breast feeding is one of the treatments for mastitis but I'm sure you are aware of this. Congrats on the new baby !!
Avatar f tn These infections are often benign and may swell from the formation of an abscess in the nodes or if they contain cancer cells. In patients who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, it is usually wise to be cautious and biopsy any enlarged lymph nodes if the swollen node persists for beyond a month or two since it may contain cancerous cells.
Avatar n tn In your situation, other possible causes would include abscess formation (bacterial infection) underneath the nipple area, or other benign conditions such as fibroadenoma or fibrocystic changes. This can also be a clogged breast duct. It is really difficult to find the very exact symptoms from forums and support groups since each person has unique symptoms and characteristics.
Avatar n tn I am 31 yaers old. I found out that i have a lump on my left breast. I went to ther doctor, and he advised me to have an ultrasound. I immediately had the ultrasound, and the impression was either lipoma or small, focal abcess formation. The doctor said if i want it to remove by surgery but i refused, becasue of some issues i have already heard. There are cases sometimes wherein the condition was aggaravated once the patient undergo surgery.

606983 tn?1220297787 I am a 33 year old mother of two. My older one was born when I was 22. I did not breast feed and I went down a cup size a few months after the birth. My second was born when I was 30. I tried to breast feed, but after a few weeks could not get any milk. My breasts again went down until I was around an a cup. 2 periods ago, i noticed a clear discharge in one nipple and both breasts were sore. This went away following my cycle. My last period, my breasts were sore again but no discharge.
Avatar n tn From your description, it seems that your right breast may have developed an infection (called mastitis) and this new lump can be a fluid collection or pus collection (abscess formation). This would have to be treated with antibiotics, and if this is really an abscess, an aspiration can be done. I agree with you that this should be seen by your doctor. Regards.
Avatar f tn This may be brought about by a break in the skin/areola, producing a superimposed infection and thus abscess formation. If there is an abscess, incision and drainage must be done and the specimen is sent to the pathologist for evaluation. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Hi there. From what you have described, this can be due an underlying infection causing abscess formation (collection of pus). This can be treated with antibiotics and/or incision of the area to drain the abscess. Other uncommon causes would include Paget's disease of the breast, with an underlying associated breast nodule. I suggest you have this looked at by your doctor to have a more accurate picture. If this is indeed infection, he may give a course of antibiotics.
Avatar f tn gov/pubmed/8316986) found that the mean age of occurrence was 44 years and majority of the patients are premenopausal or menopausal. Symptoms included tumor formation, subareolar abscess, and nipple discharge. Treatment consisted of surgical excision and adequate antibiotic coverage. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn The lump may also have to be drained, if the doctor thinks this is an abscess formation (pus formation). Male breast cancer is very rare indeed and I think this is highly unlikely in his situation. Regards.
Avatar n tn It could be a beginning abscess formation. This usually presents with a lump in the breast, with associated erythema (redness) of the overlying skin, and occasional pain on the involved site. I agree with your decision to see your doctor for evaluation. Relax and stay positive.
10126295 tn?1407962043 Benign skin with dermal inflammation/abscess formation. this was removed by surgery from my peg site . 3 months after it was removed it keep opening when i bent to do garden work, and bleed alot. all i see here is breast and other areas, if it is on the surface could there be more in the hole not just the surface.
Avatar f tn No solid mass lesion is seen in left breast. 4. No cystic lesion is seen in left breast. 5. No abscess formation is present in left breast. 6. No axillary lymphadenopathy is present. IMPRESSIONS: Ultrasound features are suggestive of "Mastitis of left breast" Please someone guide me what the 1st finding is all about and how much it is to be taken as a real cancer concern? Please help.
Avatar n tn Other common etiologies would include infections such as abscess formation. These can also be due to benign breast lesions such as papilloma or fibroadenoma. An uncommon condition is Paget's disease of the breast that commonly present in the nipple area. Since there are lots of possibilities, I suggest you have this looked at by your doctor and obtain adequate tests (like mammogram or ultrasound). Regards.
Avatar n tn Treatment is usually cold compresses,over the counter anti-inflammatory analgesics(pain killers) like acetaminophen or ibuprofen,antibiotics if cause of infection is suspected to be a bacteria and surgical drainage if there is any abscess formation. Since it is close to the axilla (if you are female) then any breast malignancy should be ruled out.
Avatar f tn The skin of the breast is the same as the skin on any part of your body where localized infection can occur such as an abscess formation,a sebaceous cyst, or a pimple etc...Also an insect bite could be a possibility. Keep the area clean, wash with an antibacterial soap and apply a little Neosporin ..If this problem does not resolve in a week or two or if you notice that it's getting larger,red and causing you pain,you should have it examined by your doctor or a dermatologist for treatment.
Avatar n tn Treatment is usually cold compresses,over the counter anti-inflammatory analgesics(pain killers) like acetaminophen or ibuprofen,antibiotics if cause of infection is suspected to be a bacteria and surgical drainage if there is any abscess formation. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac or cyst and fills with a fatty white, semi-solid material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis.It is usually painless but can become painful if infected.Then antibiotics are needed.
Avatar m tn Hi, It sounds like an abscess/boil formation, or cellulitis. Cellulitis is an infection and it's characterized by redness, swelling, warmth, and pain or tenderness. You should see a dermatologist who will treat it by draining it and most probably followed by a course of antibiotics. Even though I don't believe that this has anything to do with breast cancer,however I urge you to consult a doctor soon and get it treated to prevent further complications.

Avatar n tn I am 45 yrs.and both of my grandmothers have had breast cancer. I recently had a mamogram wich showed some asymmetry. I had a biopsy and they removed 50x40x20mm specimen. When i had my stiches taken out my surgeon told me I had to come back in six months. Here is what my pathology says and I am hoping you can tell me if I should be concerned. Microscopic examination reveals multible sections of an excisional biopsy of mammary parenchyma showing lactiferous cysts that very in diameter.
Avatar f tn Treatment is usually cold compresses,over the counter anti-inflammatory analgesics(pain killers) like acetaminophen or ibuprofen,antibiotics if cause of infection is suspected to be a bacteria and surgical drainage if there is any abscess formation.] and Salivary gland stones[sialadenitis(Most stones occur in the setting of either dehydration or sludging of saliva.Diagnosed by x-ray and sialogram.Treatment is dependent on size of stone)]. It can be a sebaceous cyst also.
Avatar n tn Surgery is not usually incorporated as part of the treatment unless it is to drain the abscess. If there is some suspicion of breast cancer on mammogram/ultrasound or MRI then the area is surgically removed for biopsy along with the abscess. I don't believe that letting the abscesses resolve on their own without treatment is a good idea. If you haven't seen a Dr. about this then you should; if you have then I suggest that you get a second opinion. Regards ....
Avatar f tn I went to ER and i have Mastitis, the pain was so terrible that it started radiating in my back and i couldnt left my right arm. I had switched to nursing DD at night when i went bacxk to work(she is7 months now. So i was deciding not to BF any more but i wasnt sure when would be a good time, since i have mastitis and the medication that im on the ER dr told me to pump and dump for the next 10 days, so i figured this would be a good time to stop BF.

We have NO IDEA what we are up against.... What type of doctor does she need??? right now her GP is treating her but this is the same dude who originally told her it was a cyst not to worry..... and considering hpw rare this thing is I am concerned.... How serious is this disease?
1551642 tn?1294355534 My oldest "wound" (an incision from my first large abscess) is probably 4 or 5 months old. We assumed it was staying open because I was breastfeeding (and the milk just came out of the incisions), but now that I'm pretty sure I have IGM, I see that slow wound healing seems to be a hallmark of the process (note: I'm no longer breastfeeding). Does anyone have wounds that have never gone away? I'm particularly anxious about a hole left in my skin from a recent burst abscess.
