Common Questions and Answers about Abscess under my breast

abscess

Avatar n tn I have an abscess under my breast. It has grown in the same spot about 3 or 4 times before. I went to the doctor and she referred me to get an ultrasound to see how far down it went. They determined that it did not go into my breast tissue. The last time i got it the doctor put me on antibiotics which i felt did nothing since it always heals by itself. Anyway, it is growing back again more painful and bigger then before and i just don't know what to do about it anymore.

Avatar m tn I know it may sound really strange but I am in so much pain from recurrent abscesses. The abscesses are usually on my leg or in my arm pit and under my breast. I had one in my rectum area too. I had been to the doctors so many times and put on dicloxicillin which seemed to help at the time, yet they still kept on recurring. i don't know what to do.......
Avatar f tn I then developed a lump under the areola of my right breast. It started to get bigger and pretty painful, I assumed it was just a clogged duct. My doc just prescribed me anti-biotics over the phone thinking it was mastitis. After 10 days the lump got bigger and more painful and I noticed it looked like it had puss underneath. So I called to get an appointment and discovered it was an abscess. It drained on it's own the day of my doctor appointment.

Avatar f tn Hi, A few year's ago I suffered from a breast abscess in my right breast. This was treated with antibiotics which didn't do the trick and eventually I had it surgically drained 3 or 4 times before it completely healed.
1274797 tn?1270846986 has reocurred for the third time in the same place, the little lump never went away for those three times, i got a call from the breast care tem this morning to come into the hosptial on monday but im a little scared now!!!
Avatar n tn ) 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!
Avatar n tn Had guilty feelings for years that i had brought this on my self. Had surgery, got another abscess flare up a wk after surgery (1996) and that has been my life eversince. I get this stuff like 4- 5 times a yr, it lasts for exactly 5 days and then i have to get a I&D or pop it myself cos antibiotics DO NOT WORK. It wil deft be back unless the whole sac and sinus tract is COMPLETELY removed. I think i still have some of the tract in my ear.
Avatar f tn I noticed what seemed to be an ingrown/blind pimple under-but on my breast. so I squeezed it- & it burst open, oozing this light green pus follled w/blood. any thoughts?
Avatar n tn I don't have brusing, just a small scar BUT the breast that had the abscess is definitely a cup smaller than my other breast and the abscess side produces a lot less milk.
Avatar f tn I have a pimple like lump on the underside of my left breast. I have had it for months. I recently became really concerned because I popped it and a white smelly discharge came out. It continues to leak and it really sinks. The pimple like lump is now purple and red, very painful, and at times it burns. I scheduled an appointment with my doctor to find out what this is. I will keep you all posted! In the meantime if any one has gone through this I would appreciate some feedback.
Avatar n tn so I am not sure if I am getting no responses because people have no info or if ya all are upset because I posted this question under the breast cancer section. I am sorry for that- I know I do not have cancer but I couldn't find a general breast health section???? Thanks so much..just not sure where else to turn. I know there are way worse issue in the the world then this....
Avatar n tn Areas prone to this kind of infection include the axilla, inguinal region, and the area under the breast. You need to see your doctor for proper management. Drainage of the abscess is done, and appropriate antibiotic should be started. Good luck.

Avatar f tn My first one was in my right breast, directly under my nipple, had 3 surgeries on that one before it went away, then a few months later one developed in my left breast, I've had 2 surgeries on that one. It went away just a couple of weeks ago and now I have another one starting in my right breast again. They are very very very painful and grow extremely fast, from pea size to golf ball size overnight.

5735172 tn?1373313725 Irritation of the left diaphragm due to acidity causing stomach distension can also cause pain under left rib cage. If you feel pain on pressing the breast then it can also be fibroadenosis or breast abscess (less likely). Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination. Take care!
Avatar f tn Im scared right before Christmas i found a lump under my armpit. Went to the doctor have a mammogram scheduled for thursday the 8th. But notice it has gotten bigger or im feeling another one. It is hard and nonmovable.
Avatar f tn It (the mass) started at the bottom of my breast and eventually grew and went under my areola. In the middle of the night my daughter swung her hand and hit my breast. It started to fill with puss over the next day or two. Because the puss was kind of all over, I was put under anesthesia to have a small surgery incision and drainage. He made an incision on the side/edge of my areola. After it closed up and healed you couldn't see the scar, it totally blended in.
Avatar m tn the pain goes through my back. Since i was 12yrs i noticed a small growth under my right breast. it look like a nipple. I have it till now. No change in size or shape.For the last 3months i feel some pain when i touch it hard. My right shoulder pains. And i have some swolen under my arm. I fear to see a docter because i think its cancer and it have gone far.
Avatar n tn or trauma to the site or breast abscess or cystic disease of the breast are painful lesions. You could have pain in your breast associated with hormonal changes linked to your menstrual cycle . You could try some OTC pain relief medications, warm compresses and see if it helps with your symptoms. Just follow up with your physician for a detailed clinical evaluation and that should put your mind at ease.
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 n tn It could be due to breast infection due to bacterial causes or due to a breast abscess. Do a proper breast self exam, wear lose clothing, apply a soothing lotion at the site, take saome OTC painkillers for a couple of days to see if the pain subsides. If it still persists then schedule an appointment with your physician for a clinical evaluation. Goodluck.

Avatar n tn I have a red knot under my right breast. It is not sore or tender, but the skin around it is peeling. Could this be just an abscess or cyst?
