I recently went through a huge amount of stress, got sick, and married in south lake tahoe during a huge storm. On the way home my right nipple began to feel sore and by the next day it was the area around the nipple on one side was inflammed. I began taking antibiotics that I had and by the next day the inflammation was gone but the sore lump was still there. I have read many things recenlty and I plan to see a Dr. tomorrow. My question is if male breast cancer can just one day flare up like that? My mom is prone to cysts, and there is no breast cancer in either family tree. I am also prone to cold sores and infections when I am under stress, could it all be related?
Thank you for your responce. I am taking Cephalexin four times a day. I started that yesterday but before that I was taking old antibiotics (amox) that I had left from a tooth thing. The inflammation is gone but the lump is still there and sore to the touch. The DR at the college (34 and still in college) is still concerned that it could be gynecomastia since I have a history of marijuana use althought that doesn't flare up like this.
How long should the lump take to begin to shrink now thta I am on proper anitbiotics?
As with many people I'm sure the fear will be here until it resolves.
