Not breastfeeding but diagnosed mastitis
Experienced intense breast pain on Friday. Warm to touch, flu like symptoms, hard lump near my nipple (right breast). Same breast I have had ultrasounds done for the same lump location for over a year - they always told me, “let’s wait, come back in 6 months and see what happens”.
Went to ER Friday night, gave me antibiotics. pain was still present yesterday and saw a breast specialist. Had ultrasound down and there's no abscess or fluid but a large amount of blood flow to this lump/area. (I'm 38, no breastfeeding/kids). They are treating me for mastitis and gave me more antibiotics.
this morning, the pain was lessened. I did another exam, not as painful (tender/sore but the lump was still there, felt full and lumpy kinda. I noticed when I lay down, that my nipple flattens and inverts itself. No biopsy was done (yet). Should I get a second opinion or call back today for more tests? Thank you! - Tracy
