Question: I think that I may have infected XXXXXXX glands that have been going on for maybe the past five years. The skin is not red or tender and appears to be normal, except for the lumpy appearance. Every few months-shorter in duration if I've been stressful, I can also squeeze out a pale yellow liquid that's probably puss. I've gone on antibiotics for cold/flu symptoms in the past, yet the appearance remains the same. Could this be some sort of adolescent/puberty problem or should I be worried about breast cancer?

Brief Answer:
Keep it clean and dry. There may not be infection, but excess discharge

Detailed Answer:
Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HealthcareMagic.
Thanks for consulting me. I have carefully gone through your query, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.

1.     First of all do not panic.

2. Usually, there are oil secreting glands at the circumference of areola, the dark circle of the breast.
They help to prevent drying and crackling of the delicate breast skin.
They secrete oily moisturizing material.

3.If you do not have redness or pain around these glands, you need not worry. Keep the area dry and clean.
What you might be getting can be excess secretions .

4. I would like to know , if you have regular cycles?
Is there any breast pain or fullness before menses?

I hope this answer was helpful to you!
Please kindly rate it as helpful and write a short review about your experience with me! I would appreciate that a lot.
Thank you and best regards!

Hello, My name is Orif. I am from Uzbekistan. I am 23 years old. I have been suffering from abdominal disorder for about 2 years. I’ll ask you to help me with my health problem. All began when I wan a student at the university. Because of not eating on time and eating fatty foods very much at one time I had a stomach problems. When I go to doctor he told me that I had a light chronic gastritis after the doctor tested me with endoscopy . I took a treatment with the recommendation of the doctor. But there was no positive result. I went to another doctor he diagnosed differently and also no result his treatment. I went to other and no result. I met about 10 or more doctor regarding with my health problem. I think the qualification of doctors in our country is not like in developed countries. That’s why I am writing to you doctor. my current complaints with my health are – there is something stuck in my throat when I swallow just without food and my throat become very tight and when I drink something the liquid passes away through my throat and stomach with the sound and movement like the sound that comes from glass bottle of coco cola when you drink like bubbles. My mouth is very dry and evil-smelling and my teeth also become dry . my chest and breast sphere also become very tight and thin even when I breathe deeply I feel pain on my breast. I cannot eat much, my stomach will be full even with few meal. After a meal I feel some hardness in my stomach with some pain. When I wake up in the morning I want to belch and while I am belching my stomach blows and comes some terrible hateful sound from the left side sphere of my stomach. This sound is like the sound of bubble coming from when blow it and let the air go out. After this sound I feel hateful smell in my mouth. This sound is my big problem that I cannot get rid of it for years. I lost my 15 kg weight from 65kg to 50 kg. I have chronic pain back of my neck. When I wake up , it seems to me that my stomach and intestine become confused and disordered and appears some movement and stirring with some noise as if they come to their own places. When I look at my stomach mainly little above of my navel, I feel the beating movement like my heart. I became very weak and my energy is very low and my blood also fell down I did all my best to get rid of this disease. Please help me
