Hello everyone. I have been having a little problem for the past 8 days. On 2-8-07 I noticed a sore on my areola at the base of my nipple (left breast). This really freaked me out since I have no idea how it got there. I waited a few days and it seemed to get worse and not better. The sore was about pea sized, red around the edges, yellow/white in the middle, with a little oozing. I went to the doctor on 2-13-07 and was prescribed the antibiotic Keflex to take 4 times a day for 10 days for the "skin infection". That night I noticed there was another one and I lost it. I went back to the doctor and they took a culture and the results won't be back until Monday 2-19-07. I have NEVER had anything like this before and don't know what to think. The doctor wants me to have a mammogram on 2-23-07 and then follow-up with a breast specialist on 2-26-07. My grandma had breast cancer. I'm guessing they don't want to take any chances. Has anyone ever had anything like this or have any advise to give?? Everytime I do research on the internet regarding this it really makes me worry. Any advise or comments would be appreciated! Thank you!!!
Hello, never have done this before. hope I am doing this correct. I am 44 years old. I have a spot that showed up about 10 days ago and I just thought maybe it was a spider bite or something. It blistered and oozed and now it is a knot very close to my right nipple. I wasn't too concerned until a second one showed up about two days ago, it has also blistered and popped and now is turning into a knot about 1 to 1 1/2 away from the first one. I have made an appointment with my OB-GYN. I am about 5'4 about 128 and a D cup with very dense breast tissue and have a history of breast cancer with maternal grandmother. Although this probably isn't related does anyone have any ideas?
I have what you've described. Mine started with areola's on breasts, itching. Next I got a nice size sore on right areola of breast. As you can't really scratch that area, I just move my lower arms up/down across the area, which really doesn't help. The itching started about a month ago, the sore about 2 weeks ago, and I have an app't with Ob/Gyn doctor tomorrow, 11/24/08. I know it's scary after reading all the symptoms of breast cancer, not to mention the statistics on getting it. But, lets hope for the best. Maybe a duct infection that can be cleared up with anti-bioltics. No clue. Have never had anything like this before. I'm 60 years young, have MS, and don't need anymore health problems. I'll say a prayer for the both of us.
