Have you had children in the past year. Could be a blocked duct. Are they going to biopsy the skin tag?

Waiting for the results of the biopsy is the hardest part. Please let me know how things go. I will support you anyway I can.

Maybe you should post above on the breast forum that the doctor answers. We only get 2 questions a day so have have to post early. Hope things go well Friday. Please let me know. I am sorry you are having such a hard time.

I am doing some research on the concept of patient-to-patient support and was hoping you could assist me. Suppose you knew of an online community whose members all suffered from breast cancer or related problems. Do you think you would have interest in being an active member of such a community - sharing your difficulties with others, providing a comforting shoulder and aiding one another? (Thanks for your cooperation!)

just to say since the removal of the fibrous nodule,my r breast is still swollen and very tender,i have been on 3 differant antibioctics and today saw the doctor again ! he has said he's not sure what's going on there ! it's either a infection (but i have no sign's now) or the anthiseptic(dont think i spelt that right! i am blonde) i had at the time is causing the swelling and the tenderness and if it hasnt gone down by monday(which will be 3 weeks since the op he will refer me to a breast clinic-

I would go ahead to a breast clinic now. I would not wait for him to try and figure out whats going on. Get tough with them to get referred sooner.

yes i dont know " if i should be worried" i can't understand why i simple op like i had would cause these prob's- i am the manager of a shop and i can't keep having this time off work! and when a doc say's he doesn't know it is worrying,i am tying my best to get my self well but i can't -and he only did a op removing that nodule-so he didn't even touch my boob! perhap's i am one in a million ha

Just get a second opinion by a breast specialist and this will ease your mind. I would not think that such a simple surgery would cause this much pain. Do you have plenty of pain meds? Put very cold cabbage leaves on your breast. Alternate between hot and cold. It may help. Sorry your in pain and a that you a so worried. If this is breast cancer of some sort early treatment is very important. Do you have a breast cancer center near by?

Hi i am a 34 year old.
I also have a skin tag on my right nipple and have been getting a severe pain.
I have noticed my skin tag also growing and therre appears to be a swelling to the side.
I am going to the breast clinic in 3 =weeks after being on antibiotics.
I have also recearched this myself and have found out that it could be menopause related, my mother and grandmother were early.
Will let you know what they say x
