Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.
nipple pain with a breast lump could be mastitis or an infected cyst. do yo have any warmth or redness of the breast?
sometimes warm compresses and/or a course of antibiotics might help.
I think if the nipple tenderness persists longer than a week or two or you have any nipple discharge, you should go in and get that ultrasound sooner.
sometimes, cycle changes can also cause some nipple sensitivity. are you still having your period?
Hello, No, I had a hysto years ago, no more cycles. I have noticed that the breast feels hot, there are also deep veins leading in the area of the first mass. I haven't really noticed any redness though
I also notice swelling in the little lumps that are actually on the nipple, not sure if this is the milk ducts or not.
well sounds like it could be an abscess or mastitis.
I would talk to your doctor about it, maybe get a course of antibiotics to see if it resolves the problem
and I would tend to get that breast ultrasound sooner than later.
ok thank you very much
