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.

Treatment will be specific based on the cause.

Avatar f tn Hi leelariah, If left untreated, the external opening may temporarily close with a resultant recurrent abscess formation or formation of a more complex fistula. These complex fistulas often traverse deep to the external sphincter making operative repair more hazardous. Additionally, long-standing fistulas have a low but real risk of malignant transformation. And blood in stools is definitely abnormal.

Avatar m tn My mom has it too, and back in her day she was too embarrassed to talk about it, and they probably wouldn't have had an effective treatment anyway. The result of the years of constipation was the formation of diverticula in her colon. Unfortunately, one of these became irritated, then infected, and then burst! She had an abscess and peritonitis and almost died.

Avatar f tn Active crohn's disease involving segments of ileum and possible focal stricture in mid distal ileum. No fistula and no abscess. I am confused because I thought MRI's would tell you with certainty what was going on in the small bowel. Why does it say "possible" stricture and is there a test that would tell for sure if there is a stricture? Also what kind of stricture--inflammatory or fibrotic?

Avatar n tn 2 weeks after the appendectomy, I was re-admitted for an abscess in my lower abdomen, about the size of a grapefruit, it was drained successfully (5 more days hospitalization), and I believe it hasn't come back - the hospital did a CBC blood count test a week after I was discharged and it turned out normal. I don't "feel" the pressing abscess anymore. One problem that hasn't really gone away is the dull tenderness and heaviness I have in my mid abdomen.

Avatar f tn Tietze Syndrome, on the other hand, is associated with swellings at the rib-cartilage junction, and lasts longer. (Costochondritis has no noticeable swelling.) Neither condition involves pus or abscess formation. Tietze syndrome usually affects the bone-cartilage junctions of the second and third ribs. The swelling may last for several months. The syndrome can develop as a complication of surgery on your sternum, months to years after the operation. However, the cause is usually unknown.
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.
578743 tn?1218557817 Nodes can have necrotic areas as a result of several factors such as outgrowing of blood supply or damage by bacteria.
