Yes, me too horrendous mastitis in right breast after birth of second son 30 years ago. Lump found last year in exactly the same area on right breast, bilateral masectomy last sept. Was at increased risk after radiotherapy (for Hodgkins) which incidentally was only a few months after the mastitis, like others I also believe there is a link.
not mastitis but a cyst, that was drained at the breast clinic. Was told at the time that is may fill up again & to come back &I have it drained....well guess what 20 years go by & the cyst was back, got referred to breast clinic to get it drained...ILBC , mastectomy next week.
BC in exactly same place as cyst 😒
I had mastitis after the birth of my second son in 1999. I remember exactly where the red area was on my left breast, and its the same place where I first felt my lump in 2010.
I've often thought about it but Ive never read any research into it. I was always convinced my cancer was caused by years on the contraceptive pill.
