Does infection from breast feeding make you have lumpy breasts?

In brief: It Can

Breast infections associated with breastfeeding may take the form of diffuse swelling (mastitis) and/or fluid-filled lumps that require drainage (abscess).
Of course, the breast may get very "lumpy-bumpy" with breastfeeding without any infection. Either way, the lumps should resolve after treatment of the infection and discontinuation of breast-feeding.
