Posted on Mon, 18 May 2015
Question: Got a bump on my right breast last Sunday.I notice a little pain and looked at it and notice a white spot that hadn't come to a head. I squeeze with my finger nail and some white stuff came out. But the bump was there the next day. Five says later a little more puss came back...it's still a little tender Uber . I mash on it. It looks better that seven days ago, but the bump is still there. It only hurts when I mash it......help

Brief Answer:
It looks like a Sebaceous cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As per your description, it looks like a Sebaceous cyst. It occurs in relation to hair follicle.
When it pressed or ruptured,white paste like material comes out.The swelling decreases in size.
As the Cyst wall is still present,you can feel it.
As there are no medicines, I prefer to remove it under local anaesthesia. It is a very simple procedure.
Nothing to worry.
Another common condition that has to be excluded is Small Abscess.
Please consult a Surgeon ,get examined clinically and proceed accordingly.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
It is not Cancer.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
It is not Cancer. 100 percent sure.
Please do not worry.
To my patients who do not want surgery with similar complaints, I prescribe Antibiotic like Clindamycin capsule along with anti inflammatory tablet which reduces any infection and inflammation. The hardness will come down.
Please consult a General surgeon or Breast surgeon, get examined clinically and proceed.
Wish you speedy recovery.
