I am 22 years old, and have a bump on my areola. I am about a week away from my period but it is nothing I have ever had in my life. My milk glands are visibly swollen as well. The enlarged gland looks similar to the worst pimple without a head you have ever seen. The single gland is extremely tender to touch. I have been very stressed in the passed months and have been have shorter irregular periods. I took a pregnancy test (in the evening) and it came back negative and will take another in the morning. Like I said it's about a week before my period.
I would suggest that you ck. with your Physician; milk ducts can become clogged and eventually cause some infection. Either your Primary Care Dr. or your Gyn. would be fine. If you are pregnant I wouldn't think it would be related at this early stage. Have it checked out just to be sure ...
