User :   I have what appears to be an inflamed or infected gland. It is not painful and just appeared 5 days ago. Do I need to see a Dr. for this? I had my annual mamo 9 months ago and was all clear. I am 57 years old and menopausal.
Doctor :   hello
User :   Hello
Doctor :   Is this the first time you have noticed it ?
User :   This is the first time I have seen something like this. I noticed it 5 days ago.
Doctor :   do you have any fever ?
User :   No fever. No other symptoms.
Doctor :   how big is the swelling ?
User :   About one and a half times the size of the other glands.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   well to answer your query
Doctor :   i will personally suggest that you should see a doctor for this
Doctor :   it can be a cyst or a minor infection
Doctor :   and its important for a early examination, and the reason for that would be that any breast pathology if treated early has a success rate of 100%
