  • Sounds like an infected duct. See you GYN and they will probably give you antibiotics. You may also try a warm shower or hot compress. I hope you feel better soon.

  • It could be something minor and treatable with antibiotics. It could be breast cancer and the longer you wait to find out, the more likely you will need chemotherapy and it will spread throughout your body. You may be looking for reassurance but don't take it from anyone here. Make a doctor's appointment today and take care of yourself appropriately.
