Please answer yes and is this dangerous? thank you
Hello Nishaniy, thank you for the question.
Swelling in the breast can be caused by inflammation or mass growth. Problems can occur in the skin of the breast area, breast tissue, or even the chest muscles located under the breast. Based on your ultrasound picture you get the following impression:
Right breast: visible mammary glands in the breast are normal, no mass (abnormal tissue growth), and no armpit lymph enlargement. Left breast: thickening of the skin and underlying skin tissue, visible area of suspected inflammation around the nipple, no mass, and enlarged armpit lymph nodes. Impression: an inflammatory process in the breast tissue around the left nipple suspected as acute mastitis. Differential diagnosis: inflammation due to malignancy. Radiologists can only give the impression of the picture they get on radiological examination. The radiologist cannot give a definitive diagnosis because a definite diagnosis must be made by a doctor who performs a physical examination. The doctor who treats you will match physical findings with radiological findings. If the treating doctor decides that your condition is more supportive of mastitis, then the doctor will provide appropriate therapy. If the doctor discovers a suspicion of a malignant process, then maybe the doctor will proceed with mammography, biopsy, or MRI.
You can overcome the pain with a warm compress, avoid using a bra that is too tight, and consumption of paracetamol 500 mg 3-4 times a day. You also need to know that mastitis is a condition that can be experienced by anyone and is not limited to breastfeeding women. Most infections are caused by bacteria and can heal completely as long as you follow the doctor's advice. You should return control to your doctor so that your condition can be completely cured. Hope this answer helps. Regards.
