Thanks for writing to us.
Bump on the nipple in the post partum period is most commonly an infected mammary gland duct. This is mostly treated with the help of antibiotics and maintaining a good hygiene. You need to consult your gynecologist for prescription of proper antibiotics. Do continue to express milk from this breast irrespective of the infection.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

There's a range of things it could be. But no matter what you think it is, it has to be checked.
It can range anywhere to a little cyst, or a bug bite maybe, to something like Breast cancer.

I suggest you go get it checked by a doctor, and get a biopsy of it.

Hope i helped
