why do i keep getting breast abscess and why does dr. seem not to be very educated on this ?

ok im am in my 20s dont have kids so never have breast feed ? so why so i keep getting breast abscess which have to be cut and drained everytime , this will be the 3rd time in 3 yrs and it always happins in Nov. which is crazy  and whats more crazy is the dr. seem to not know why this happins either so what the heck good are they their the ones who went to school and ive learned more about this on internet than they tell me and my mom is actually the one who told me what it could be which is mastitis .. so why couldnt they tell me that after 3 times it seems like they would know that but no all they say is oh its an infecton and put me on antibotic (antibiotic) which never work so it abscesses and needs to be drained and very very painfull while and grows soooo fast like over night my get huge size of an orange in less than a week so all im tring to do is figure out why i keep getting these and what i can do to stop them since ive been researching on this ive learned quiet alot but still im wondering shoud i get the realated glands removed because always happing in same exact place or could it have to        do with cold weather since it happinngs when it first starts to get cold outside ? and also whats the differnts between chronic mastitis and subareola abscess because thats the only 2 breat infections i could come up with please i need help if anyone knows anything on this let me know since the drs dont seem to care and thats scary theres no good dr. anymore that actually care they treat u more like a pay check than a person

If you have no confidence in your Dr. then I suggest that you find another; perhaps a Breast Specialist. If you do have Granulomatous Mastitis you should know that it is VERY difficult to treat and is usually a chronic condition. From what you have posted I seriously believe you should be seeing a Breast Specialist who can better deal with your problem. Take care .....

If it turns out that you do have granulomatous mastitis, there is a "user group" devoted  to that condition on this Web site, which could be a good source of information amd support for you.

To find it, wave your cursor over the word "forums," next to the MedHelp logo at the top of this page, and when the drop-down menu apperars, click on "user groups." Once you are taken to that page, type "granulomatus mastitis" in the search box, and it will take you to that user group's page.

Bwst wishes...
