Hello, for the last 3 months I have had 5 lumps. One I know for sure was an abcess because I was in the hospital for 2 days on that one, which was my 1st lump. The 2nd time I recieved it was a month later and there was 2 under my armpit. My dr told me that they were connected. He prescribed my antibiotics but they did nnot work so he injected something into them with a shot. which made them go away. A month later I got 2 more, one was on the side of my right breast which was HUGE, swollen, red, and very sore. the second was right below my left breast kind of where the bra sits and was very painfl bt not too big. Again my dr prescribed antibiotics a few days before I was kicked off insurance. Luckily It was months supply and they slowly went away. Its been a month and a half and I still have the huge one on the right breast side. It looks like a brown bruise. I just recently was added back onto insurance and I was wondering if I should go get a mammagram done to see whats casusing them?

  • i have been through the same thing and going through it again i have had five in my left breast 2 in my right antibiotics fix the right but it will not help with the left i have had two surgeries to drain the abcesses. I am just tired of this i breast fed my last child 6 years ago thinking it helped me with my other 2 children but i sometimes wonder if it had anything to do with it. The doctor tell my it is staph that is keeping them infected but come on. They tested for cancer found none thank god but now what, we should not have to live like this.

  • Some women are naturally endowed with large and firm breasts. However, millions of women will never attain their full breast size because of hormone imbalances, excessive dieting, vitamin or mineral deficiencies and/or stress. Many of these women will resort to risky and expensive breast surgery. But YOU don’t have to! Clevastin™ Natural Breast Enlargement System offers a safe and all-natural way to develop breasts to their full potential – without embarrassing doctor visits or surgery.
