4 months ago a I found a small painful lump in my left breast. I went to a doctor in Batam and was told that I had mastitis. He put me on meds for 2 week. the pain is gone, however the lump has tripled in size the skin feels almost like leather and the nipple is slightly inverted. There is also a lot of milky like discharge. Should I be worried?

Went to the doctor today. He thinks that the lump is a tumor. Tomorrow I will have another usg scan and the lump will be removed next week and sent off for testing.
So very worried!

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. You should have your doctor look at the lump again. If there is ever a time where you feel as if something is wrong with your body, you should always seek medical assistance.

Keep us posted on what your doctor tells you.

Thanks, Messie!

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon, but it is the waiting that is the hard part.
