Boils In The Breast
morning doc, my friend’s breasts used to have ulcers, and then pus came out, now the marks are like lumps that don’t disappear, can it later become cancerous docks?
Thank you for the question.
If it is true that your partner experienced in her breasts is a boil, then this condition is often not dangerous. Boils occur when there are hair roots that are infected by bacteria, thus forming a lump that feels painful, reddish, warm, swollen, and also festering. In most cases, a lump due to ulcers can deflate or break on its own, then heal in a few days. Although indeed, after recovery, it may appear that the disruptive scars, and last a long time due to the process of formation of lung tissue (hypertrophic scars). If this is really the originator of the condition of your colleague, then often it has no potential to develop into cancer.
However, it also needs to be understood, that often, what is considered a boil by ordinary people, is not really a boil. There are several other cases that can also cause a lump in the breast that does not go away, for example breast abscess, breast cancer, to tumors or other infections around the breast. Not all of these conditions can be underestimated.
Therefore, it would be far better, if you urge your colleague to check himself directly to the nearest doctor. That way, of course doctors can distinguish which lumps are potentially malignant, and which are not. If necessary, later your colleague may be advised to see a surgeon, or undergo further examinations, such as breast ultrasound, biopsy, mammography, and so on.
In the meantime, you can teach your partner to maintain cleanliness (especially the area around her breasts) better. Not only that, make sure he does not hold the lump in her breasts with dirty hands, be more diligent in eating vegetables and grains that contain rich antioxidants, also eat lots of fruits, limit the eating habits of preserved and flavored foods, regularly exercise, and do not carelessly give drug on complaints without direct advice from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
