Avatar f tn The treatment for this is to remove the entire area of concern and follow up with regular exam and mammogram. Breast pain is very common and is not usually associated with breast cancer. You should bring it up to your doctor who can do an examination and determine if any additional evaluation is warranted. Another options is to seek the advice of a medical breast specialist.

1461017 tn?1285816382 Papillomas frequently involve the large milk ducts near the nipple. Multiple papillomas may also be found in the small breast ducts further from the nipple. Of the benign conditions that cause suspicious nipple discharge, approximately half is due to papilloma and the other half is a mixture of benign conditions such as fibrocystic conditions (i.e., lumpy) or duct ectasia (widening and hardening of the duct due to age or damage).
Avatar n tn Went to my gynocologist in November to describe symptoms in left breast of burning near armpit and sensitivity on breast near the 4 and 5 o'clock area. She palpitated for lump(s). Found none and breast looked normal. She felt I may have gotten an inflamation from the bladder infection antibiotic I was on. She told me to take evening primrose oil for a week and see if symptoms abate. They did go away.

Avatar n tn Has anyone every experienced breast pain when they lie down at night to go to sleep? I'm 45, and my left breast is painful to the touch right near their nipple area. I had my b/f see if he could feel anything and when he pressed that area it hurt and he said he felt something. I made an appt for the doctor for tuesday. I haven't bang it or anything. Does anyone know if breast cancer lumps are painful? Could it something else, but what?

Avatar f tn Shoud I wait that long or go to a specialist right now. I do have breast pain; however, the concentration is on my left breast, but my right nipple is tender. I also feel that my area above my left breast leading up to my clavicle sits high. Please advise.
Avatar n tn As the breasts suspend and stretch these ligaments, sometimes a small one make break near a nerve ending and cause this pain. It is self-healing; however, caster oil packs will make it feel better. He recommended I wear a good support bra. He said it takes awhile to heal, about 2 months. I can't find any information about this. Can you enlighten me in any way?
Avatar f tn htm An intraductal papilloma, on the other hand, is a small, wart-like growth that projects into the breast ducts near the nipple. This causes a bloody or sticky discharge. In addition, any slight bump or bruise near the nipple can cause the papilloma to bleed. If the discharge becomes bothersome, the duct can be surgically removed, often without changing the appearance of the breast. Multiple intraductal papillomas - which often occur in both breasts - are more common in younger women.
Avatar m tn I'm not sure if i have a pimple near my nipple.. One of the little bumps near my nipple (the Montgomery gland i think) hurts and it feels like there is a hard lump there as if its a pimple. Its hard and painful when i press it and the hard lump sorta goes inner. It looks like a slight normal coloured bump near my nipple. Is it a pimple or is it something serious beyond?
Avatar f tn It is a small, usually noncancerous (benign) growth that projects into a milk duct near your nipple. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Avatar n tn Two weeks ago I sort of jump / lie on my stomach/chest and I felt burning pain on my right breast near the nipple. I have shoulder pain caused by sudden turn of steering wheel for 2 months now. I have limited arm movement. I'm just wondering if the breast pain if pressure is applied -is associated with the shoulder pain or result of an injury to the breast because of sudden move?

Avatar n tn I have been having severe left breast pain , near my armpit area. i also have nipple discharge if the lump is squeezed hard enough. I went for a mammogram and it was abnormal, a mass and density were reported. I have a appt this friday with a surgeon. I am so scared. has anyone had this type of problem? To make matters worse i have breast implants. I am 37 years old and noticed a little pain 3 years ago. Im a nervous wreck right now.
Avatar f tn From what you describe it sounds like Mammary Duct Ectasia Symptoms, that may be caused by infection or inflammation of a milk ducts in the breast, near the nipple, causing green,blue brown or black discharge, that may also including a breast lump under the nipple. This problem can be treated with antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or even surgery to remove the abnormal duct.
Avatar n tn I went for a breast MRI and it showed nothing. I still have the pain and swelling. Sometimes my breast feels "engorged". Sometimes it feels like I am breastfeeding and had "let down". I have not breastfeed in 7 years. The breast center is not telling me anything that I can do. I have also noticed a rash between my breast that has been there over a year now and I have showed this to my breast specialist and they are not concerned with that.
Avatar n tn An option for her would be to seek the advise of a breast specialist. There is a type of breast cancer (inflammatory breast cancer) that presents with symptoms of redness, inflammation of the tissue of the breast. These symptoms are similar to what would be seen with an infection. So if symptoms are not getting better with treatment(antibiotics) of infection, further evaluation would be done.
Avatar n tn i have been on Dflucan 100mg for the past four days. The pain has lessened but remains a dull throb near my nipple. however, the USG showed a cyst or other mass but it was located in the upper quadrant of my breast midway between my arm pit and my nipple. It doesn't hurt but my breast is definately swollen. I can barely fit into my bras as my left breast swells over the edges all around. this is new. it wasn't doing this earlier. Should i call the dr again?
Avatar n tn Sorry your in pain and a that you a so worried. If this is breast cancer of some sort early treatment is very important. Do you have a breast cancer center near by?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Has anyone had a problem with burning and pain around the nipple area of their breast? I have had pain for about a year, it started out as a light pain that would come and go, then it was more frequent. For like the last 3 weeks my breast feels like it is on fire and the pain is unbearable. Even to have the seatbelt rub it brings me to tears. To explain be example I say it feels like something is tearing the skin and trying to climb out of my nipple. It is just horrible.
Avatar f tn Today I notice an increase pain in my nipples, which I figure is normal but also the size of my nipples have increased...Is that normal? (they are bigger round) Still not pumping much...anything I can do to help with that??
Avatar n tn First of all, and to get it out of the way, even though some people with breast cancer do experience some form of pain, breast pain is not a common symptom of a breast malignancy. Most often than not, breast tenderness is secondary to hormonal changes, especially during menstruation, pregnancy, puberty, breast feeding and near menopause. Other common causes of breast pain fibrocystic breast changes, injuries, mastitis, and premenstrual syndrome.
Avatar m tn I would occasionally get the thick white discharge that accompanies nearly all types of piercings, but never any pain or swelling. Recently (about two weeks ago) I had some swelling in my left breast, just above the nipple. It was so uncomfortable I took the piercings out. Since then, the area above the nipple has become red, extremely tender, and the area feels very hard. The affected area is almost an inch across. My areola has also changed shape.
