Clogged breast duct??
I am 33 yrs old and 3 days ago while showering i felt something abnormal on my left breast. It is a tube like lump..it is pretty long too...I went to the doctors today and she said I have a clogged duct??? I am just wondering if anyone has ever felt one??? or had one?? I have 4 kids but my youngest is 7 so i havent had one recently. I have never had one before..she said that she will put the referral to have an ultrasound just incase. And that i can put warm cloth on for pain. So, will this just go away?? How does it drain out??? Can someone help?

This condition is not all that uncommon. A definite diagnosis may be made by Ultrasound as recommended by your Dr. Sometimes there will be nipple discharge as a symptom also and the warm packs are a first line treatment and should be applied 3 or 4 times daily. If the problem does not resolve on it's own you may require a course of antibiotics as an infection can occur. If the condition does not resolve the duct can be removed surgically. Hopefully your problem will resolve itself soon. Regards ....
