I have had breast abscesses continuously for 6 years now. My first one was in my right breast, directly under my nipple, had 3 surgeries on that one before it went away, then a few months later one developed in my left breast, I've had 2 surgeries on that one. It went away just a couple of weeks ago and now I have another one starting in my right breast again. They are very very very painful and grow extremely fast, from pea size to golf ball size overnight. I have found a home remedy that helps me with the pain, but I really would like for these to stop. Please tell me what needs to be done to make these go away? Do I need to cut them off??? Please please help me.
Dear StacyR1121: Breast abcesses can occur for a number of reasons and we cannot speculate on what may be going on in your case. We recommend that you seek the opinion of a medical breast specialist (these are often affiliated with large academic medical centers) who can evaluate your situation and hopefully offer some advice and/or recommendations.
God bless you, girl! My journey of fun began last year...had my fourth breast surgery since Oct. 2007 a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely relate to your frustration at the situation and have also considered a masectomy in order to have any quality of life. The list of theories that have been thrown around is endless. Finally, had a breast MRI on Monday--will have the results next week. Please know you are in my prayers--send me a private msg and we can compare notes. Take care and God Bless!
