Handling Of Lumps Near The Suppurating Nipples?
Hello. I have often been spotty on my back and chest. Now there was a lump of pain near my nipple. It seems like boils because the pus doesn’t come out long when I hold it. I thought for a long time “it would be flat because the pus had come out. It turns out that until now there are lumps that don’t hurt. Then what should I do?

There is a complaint of a lump near your nipple and pus was previously out but until now the lump is still there even though pus has come out, then this condition needs to be consulted so that it can be examined and seen directly by your family doctor.
In general, if the lump has previously been pus-forming, and has healed but the lump is still present, then the possibility of this lump is granulation tissue or prut tissue after recovering from inflammation of the skin, acne, or pus in the inflammation area. This scar tissue is tissue formed after the inflammation process, so that it can be felt as a lump with a protruding surface, hard, but not painful. In general, scarring does not require special treatment, so there is no need for surgical procedures or procedures. However, in certain conditions, either because of the aesthetics, the size of the lump, or because of its location; this tissue can irritate you or the patient, so in that condition, this scar tissue can be surgically removed to remove the remaining scar tissue. However, all these processes must be ensured directly by your family doctor or your surgeon, so that the right treatment steps are known.
Some other conditions can also provide a similar picture, such as:
1. Keloids, or scar tissue that grows excessively
2. Blockage of the oil glands from the areola skin
3. Benign tumors of fat tissue
4. Benign breast tumor, but this lump is inside the breast tissue
Some of the above possibilities still need to be ascertained directly by your doctor, because direct examination can help evaluate its causes.
Therefore, visit your family doctor, so that doctors can conduct interviews directly related to this complaint. Physical examination and supporting examinations can be carried out according to the indications. The results of the examination will be the reference of care and treatment for you.
For the time being, you should not hold on to this lump until you see your doctor, this is to prevent the risk of bacterial contamination of the bump area and prevent new wounds on the area.
