How big is the lump - Size? Is there any lump in the breast you can feel? Any discharge, fever. redness?
Any medical illness like diabetes? Any medications you are on?
About an inch in diameter...none on the breast. no discharge...just feel it and no redness but soreness. I had blood sugar checked 4 months ago no diabetes. I am on acyclovir and prozac and just started a month ago topical estrogen.
If there is soreness in the swelling ,then there is some inflammation in the swelling.It could be infected sweat glad or cyst.It may require a course of antibiotic to settle it before there is pus formation.
I would suggest you to see your doctor who can prescribe the medications and of necessary remove it at a later date when there is no infection.
So it wouldn't be cancer?
Difficult to tell unless the lump is biopsied.But if there is no lump in the breast then there are less chances.
you should get a mammogram done to clear it off.
I had a mammogram in June...
Was it clear?
Yes, they said it was
Very rare to develop a cancer in 4 months with a node in the armpit so fast.
ok...I will go to the walk in clinic in the morning...it is in the clinic where my regular doctor is but isn't there on Fridays....
OK. Take care.
