Mastitis: Infection of the breast can be seen from different bacteria or other organisms. Most commonly, bacteria that are normally on the skin infect the breast from breaks in the skin or through the ducts. Patients may have redness, warmth or swelling. You should consult with your primary care physician if you have any questions. Patients with breast implants should pay close attention to any changes.
