Hi simon,

Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are describing can be fibrocystic disease of breast, mastitis etc.

It can occur as a result of bacterial infection.
Oral antibiotics and analgesics have to be taken.
I encourage you to visit qualified general surgeon or gynaecologist for examination and treatment.

Hope this helps.
