What could be the red lump on breast which is getting larger ?
I am 30 years old, 5 2 and i weigh approx. 178lbs. I have a lump that just showed up about two weeks ago now and it is very tender. The skin above the lump is also red and it has begun to peel. It seems to be getting larger. The lump is located right next to my nipple and now I can feel it under my nipple as well. Any idea what this is?
You seem to have a breast abscess. You need to take an antibiotic and a pain-killer tablet. You may do hot fomentation too with a cloth heated on a tava.
You are 81 kg and 155 cm with BMI of nearly 30. Ideally your BMI should be below 25 and a target weight of 60 kg. Because of obesity you are prone to diabetes. So get your blood sugar checked for both fasting and two hours after.
