I have read through a few of the questions here but can't seem to find anything related to abscesses or they the same as cysts?
I have over the last 3 or 4 years been back and forth to my GP/ hospital/ breast clinic. Each time treated with antibiotics which normally do the trick within a week.
This last visit to GP I was given a one week course of Erythromycin but had to return so the dose was doubled for another week, on seeing GP again she has referred me to see a consultant on an urgent 2 week appointment referral (appointment 20th Nov) during this time my right breast was agony, the abscess always forms behind my nipple which was always slightly inverted, the abscess itself feels about the size of a golf ball but this time I had a thick sticky green puss leaking from the nipple over 2-3 days.
Should I be concerned that these repeated abscesses would later turn to something I should be worrying about?
