Nodules
About This Group:

This group is intended as a meeting place and forum for those who have been diagnosed with granulomatous mastitis ('GM') or idiopathic granulomatous mastitis ('IGM'). I think one of the greatest challenges with this disease is its rarity and the associated lack of understanding in the medical community. But we can share here - and hopefully make the healing process a little easier for each other.

Hi all!
Do you have nodules? Do you think the nodules become abcesses?

I'm not sure about nodules, maybe it's the inflammation (white blood cells attacking the infection for a hardness).  I noticed my abscesses are first red areas, that turn reddish-purple then fill with pus.  Then I have the surgeon drain it.

thank you for your answer!
what I mean with nodules are
solid in the mammary gland and after some weeks they start turning pink then red and become abscesses. Right now I have 4 (very small) not ready to convert in abscesses, the rest of them have healed.
I have my Doctor doing a needle aspiration every time I need it, they don't want to "cut" the abscess as it may take longer to heal.
I know may sound weird, but I am doing Bee Venom tratement and I am off the drugs right now, my joint pain has gone and my breast is slowing down the processes.
Thanks a lot for your response
