Breast Lumps and Pain

Question:

What kind of follow-up procedure has your doctor recommended following an exam for breast lumps and pain? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: suzzieq, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: March 16

April 2013 I felt a lump under my left nipple. I went to my gynecologist and he referred me to a breast doctor. I had a mammogram appointment scheduled prior to meeting with the breast doctor. The day after my mammogram I woke up with my left breast swollen, red and the skin was burnt and extremely hot to the touch, and painful. I went to the breast doctor, she drained it and put me on antibiotics. It was an infection (abscess). Antibiotics did not help, it got hard and I had to have an incision. I was diagnosed with chronic fibrocystic breasts. Fast forward, in December 2015 both breasts had discharge, I went to the emergency room, and was referred to my new breast doctor. Unfortunately antibiotics were not working and the breast got worse. I had an incision in April, May and September in 2016. I was hospitalized for 3 days and on antibiotics for 9 months. Several cultures, MRI, and ultrasound were done. Thank goodness it is not cancer but the mystery remains why I get it so severe and frequent. I still feel pain every so often from the cysts. Thank you all for sharing your stories and hope we all get some answers soon. Stay strong ladies.
