Clogged Milk Duct & Breast Cancer

I am 34 years old and have a 6 month old baby.  I am still nursing and have had at a clogged milk duct at least a dozen times.  Is there any link between a clogged milk duct (recurring in the same location) and breast cancer in the future?

Hi,
Galactocele or a milk cyst (clogged milk duct) is usually associated with childbirth, in both breast feeding and non-breast feeding mothers. It is a benign condition and self limiting. No medical intervention is usually required. Just maintain aclean hygiene to prevent any super added infection. Goodluck.
