Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
In which city are you based ?
The sonomammogram does not show evidence of abscess.
I do not find a need for surgery.
Please take antibiotics, and anti inflammatory medicines for 5 days.
Hot compresses followed by milk expression.
Your doctor should prescribe the medications , but I can suggest Augmentin as antibiotic and Chymoral forte for pain and swelling relief.
All the best.
