Dear Susie R: There are many possible explanations for breast lumps. Without evaluation, it is not possible for us to speculate on what this lump may be. As a rule, any new lump should be evaluated by a physician.
By the time I went to the Dr I had an open area appears like a burn red painful and draining. He said it was mastitis and treated with ATB x 7 days. Now area larger and more drainage. He could not feel a lump but now that it is an open area it is gone. I still have fevers daily and getting very frustrated that it is getting worse. He is unable to do a mamogram yet because of an ? infection. Could it be an abcess? and not mastitis.
