Doctor :   Ok then this probably indicates a infection may be.
User :   how can you get an infection on your breasts?
Doctor :   It will be better if you get your self examined and investigated by a gynecologist and you may also require some investigations since your periods are also delayed you may require a hormonal investigation also.
