Lump In Breast After Mastitis
Do I need to take antibiotics for possible mastitis? Fever resolved in less than 24 hrs but still have lump in breast. Baby got fever today, related?
Probably related: The probability of those two things are related. If the breast lump is still there, it may be a site of "trapped milk" with infection so your MD needs to check it out and then make the determination as to whether antibiotics are needed or not. ...Read more

Wait and watch: You probably have a big hematoma (bruise) where your seatbelt went across your breast. You may not see a bruise, but it can be deep within the breast. It takes time for your body to heal this, so it may be a month or two before you notice it getting better. Use ice packs. If it's getting worse, not better, see a doctor. Rarely the area can keep bleeding inside your breast, requiring surgery. ...Read more

Small, but plz C Dr.: It is very difficult to distinguish normal "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue from one that warrants further evaluation. Lumps that "count" tend to be 3-dimensionally round rather than pencil- or pancake-shaped and are harder than normal rubbery breast tissue. When finding a new lump, it is best to see your dr.;it may be wise to get a mammogram, ultrasound, or even a biopsy, depending on their findings. ...Read more
