What Causes Skin Tag On The Breast With Lump Beneath It?

I have a skin tag on my right breast and a lump about the size of a golf ball has come up underneath the skin tag, with a big red circle around the area. It is also very painful!! It feels like an infected pimple, but there is no pimple there, just a skin tag!!

General Surgeon 's  Response
hi.

it is best if you consult with a doctor, preferably a general surgeon, for medical and physical examination. based from your description, it could be an inflammatory reaction or a cyst, a benign breast lesion. it could also be a fibroma or fibrocystic lesion. these lesions are best evaluated clinically. further diagnostic examinations, such as breast ultrasound and mammography, will be requested as needed. regular breast examination and follow-up with your doctor is highly recommended in these cases. management (medical and/or surgical) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.     

good day!!
