Abscess under nipple

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess under nipple


Avatar f tn Is this normal for mastitis, or has it progressed into an abscess? I really just want to go have it drained just to relieve the pressure and pain but I'm afraid my midwife will want to wait until I'm done with the antibiotics.
Avatar f tn This is quite weird..I have a nodule (not big) half under my nipple and half out..I think it will be an abscess soon..have you ever had that? I wonder how it will drain by itself....I mean on what part of the skin.... Thanks!
Avatar n tn I underwent a surgery for breast abscess on my left breast on Nov 1st 2002.My investigations say: Surgery done under GA,Left breast painted and draped .Incision made on the submit of the swelling which was just below the nipple.Thick pus let out.30ml of thick pus present.Pus sent for culture and found OK.Loculations broken down.Wash given usingH2o2, betadine and saline.Roller guaze used and wound packed. I have been going for dressing for the past 1 month.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experiecned this issue. It is sometimes called a subareola abscess. This is a chronic condition- I have had 3 surgeries to removed the abscess because of the pain associated with it. It is back again and my last surgery was in November. I quit smoking because that is what my one doctor to me the was the ONLY cause and that is I quit smoking it will stop them from returning 100% of the time.
Avatar m tn I have a 6 year old female pug. Yesterday i noticed a lump under her lower belly nipple. It's hard in some places and soft in others. I lightly squeezed her nipple today and blood came out. She has never had pups. I am very concerned out her. Any ideas please?
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Nipple pain could be due to rough sex if you are sexually active, ill fitting bra, jogging without bra, eczema, contact dermatitis, Paget’s disease of the breast, bacterial or fungal infection. If there is breast soreness then it could also be due to fibroadenosis or even an abscess. Please consult your PCP or gynecologist for primary examination followed by proper referral or treatment. Hope this helps. Take care!
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.
Avatar m tn I'm not sure if there is an abscess in there or not. My nipple, which is usually quite big, is flattened and even with my areola. There is no longer any discharge, but my breast feels...full. The retest that the dr did two weeks ago came back with no Staph so the antibiotics cleared it up. The cytology results are not back yet so I'm unsure if there are abnormal cells. I see the dr again tomorrow, so hopefully she will let me know if there was anything abnormal.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be mastitis, breast abscess, etc. Are you lactating at the moment and do you ave any asociated clinical features of nipple discharge/redness/ soreness? You should get a clinical examination and see if your physician wants to prescribe any antibiotics or painkillers. He might want to run you through some tests including blood tests, and maybe a mammography.
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 n tn Also, surgery may be indicated if there is a very persistent, copious discharge, breast pain, nipple retraction or an underlying mass thought to be an abscess or inflammatory mastitis. It is difficult to treat and excision of the inflamed ducts is only about 85% successful. Whether the mammogram is benign or not, you should see a surgeon experienced in breast disease for further management.
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.
Avatar n tn That night when I went home I began thinking that my arm pit hurt that morning when I put deodorant on. So, I felt under my arm and there was a lump about the size of a pea. It was alittle sore. Now four days later the lump is almost gone. Is this something that I should be concerned about. Is this a trait of a cancerous tumor or lump?
Avatar f tn Hi guys, I have had a sore swollen breast, under the nipple for about 5 weeks. I was hospitalised and put on IV antibiotics. An ultrasound showed a cyst/abscess. They did a aspiration and a little puss came out, was tested and a particular infection was found. I was put on antibiotics and after about 7 days was well on the mend. Pain had gone and lump /hardness was decreasing. Now, a week after i stopped the antibiotics, the pain is starting to return and i had some discharge from my nipple.
Avatar f tn Many benign lesions show up on a MRI looking quite similar to cancerous lesions therefore anything that looks suspicious, additional testing becomes necessary. Until your lesion is checked under the microscope, there is no way to know if it is cancer. Having "washout kinetics" makes it suspicious, but you could still end up with benign results. Hang in there and we hope that your biopsy procedure will go smoothly and results in benign findings. All the best to you and good luck!
Avatar f tn Hi again. It would be hard to tell whether the lump under your nipple is benign (probable secondary to fibrosis if there was a previous infection) or malignant without the benefit of a good physical examination and diagnostic evaluation. I highly encourage you to see your doctor for evaluation. Take care.
Avatar n tn Over the last couple of days there has been a lump under my right nipple - very painful - this morning I woke up and most of my right breast is bright red and the lump is more defined. Should I see a doctor?
Avatar n tn my 3 year old female guinea pig has a lump near her right nipple and her nipple was bleeding.
Avatar n tn There are several conditions that can present with a painful lump under the nipple or breast. An example would be an abscess of the areolar gland (part of the nipple underneath) where the glands become inflamed forming abscesses. Another example would be an acute mastitis where the breast becomes tender and swollen. It would be best to seek consult with your doctor for proper evaluation and management. I hope that helped.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend had discovered a hard lump, about a size a little bigger than an adult thumb behind his right nipple and he says he can feel a slight pain when u gently press or squeeze it and he's had it for about 3 weeks now...he's made an appointment to go get it checked but wanted to see if u can give him any ideas of what it might be? And if age matters, he is 34 years old..
Avatar n tn Hi, Hi, What is your age? Usually an infective process like mastitis; or trauma to the site or breast abscess or cystic disease of the breast are painful lesions. Have you tried OTC pain relief medications, warm compresses and has it helped with your symptoms. Just follow up with your physician for a detailed clinical evaluation and that should help in reaching a confirmed diagnosis. Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Regards.
Avatar f tn hi, a few days ago i noticed a large lump under my right nipple. it is quite tender and the skin around it burns. it feels like it is attached but i am not sure. i am extremley worried :S does anyone ahve any idea what this might be?
Avatar f tn My husband has a lump in his left breast tip(nipple area). There's pain when pressed too.. It's been a month now.. The lump is not growing but remains in the same size. what is the real reason? Is it serious?
Avatar n tn Now, the discoloration is on my left areola too (just beginning on the outside of left breast around nipple on areola). I also have swollen glands in my neck and under both arms in my armpits. Could my symptoms be a deep abscess? I have no pain, and no redness. The ultrasound also found about four lumps in my other side (left) too. Could this be infection spreading? I just want to know if it possibly sounds like those possiblitlites according to my symptoms/signs.
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 An abscess should be ruled out. Other disease condition that can involve the nipple is Paget’s disease. This presents with scaling eczematoid lesion in the nipple in the early stages, and later the nipples becomes reddened and excoriated. I would suggest consult with your doctor for proper evaluation and management. Good luck.
Avatar m tn I used to get them usually in and around my ears and I once had one under my nipple. But they never got infected like these are and I haven't gotten one in years until these recently. Also in 2004, I was hospitalized with pneumonia that developed into a lung abscess. Do you think either of these items are related? Isn't an abscess like a cyst? Do you think I may have some kind of infection causing these cysts to flare up like this.
Avatar n tn I'm a 5yr breast cancer survior, with minor pain coming from under left armpit. there seems to be swelling in the left breast, into the armpit and going up into the neck and just the left side of the face. Could this be caused by to much lifting and pulling on heavy items at work? Or should I be more concerned that it is something else? My orginal cancer was in the right breast and was ductal, resulting in removal of that breast, and reconstruction being done.
Avatar n tn The only pain I have have is from the swelling, I don't notice any glands that a sore. It goes around to under my arm and sometimes into my back. Can you tell me if this is something I should be concerned about? Any help is appreciated.
Avatar n tn I've had this small bump on my right areola of my nipple for about 2 years now. I was expecting it to go away or something but it hasn't. It doesn't hurt or anything and it hasn't grown. When I squeeze it hard enough some pus or whatever comes out similar to a pimple. What is it? http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn137/aznmuscle/Untitled-1.jpg http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn137/aznmuscle/2.
