Lump under areola?
Hey all, just want to know if anyone has developed a lump under your areola?  I have, it's a small mass but its sensitive to touch.   If anyone can relate, please share.  

I really wish I had doctors here that's seen this before and knows the disease and its stages.  It's the unknown that worries me.

I hope everyone is doing well.  Any new people recovered? I've developed 2 new masses/red spots.  I can't wait for this all to be over!!!  Take care everyone,   Jamie

I had GM in 2009 and 2010, was treated with prednisone and methotrexate for a year which started my recovery and I finished off the cure by wearing poultices made with calcium bentonite clay. I still get mastitis-like lumps under both the areola of the diseased breast as well as of the well breast.  They are slightly swollen and tender.  I simply make a poultice by smearing the clay onto a gauze pad, forming sort of a ball, and place it against the nipple, pressing down so the breast has a normal shape, and putting the jogging bra over that (wear the bra first, it's easier).  I wear it day and night, changing the poultice about every 6-8 hours.  It can take about a week for the lump to go away but it eventually shrinks to nothing.  I believe it might go away on its own, but it my case it would take about a half a year to go away, instead of about a week.
