Lump On The Nipple?
at night,rnrnI had a lump in my nipple for 2 days. But my breasts are not watery. What pain do I feel when I shift the clothes I’m wearing? How do I fix it and what should I do?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Painful lumps in the nipples can be normal, for example due to enlargement of the Montgomery glands, which are located in the black part around the nipple (areola). These glands are normally enlarged due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. However, in some rare conditions, this gland can also enlarge even though you are not pregnant, for example before menstruation or using hormonal contraception.
However, lumps caused by enlarged Montgomery glands generally only cause mild pain. This pain can occur, for example, if the breast rubs against clothing, scratches, or experiences other irritation.
If the pain you feel is quite severe, then you should be aware of other possible causes of nipple lumps, for example:
Folliculitis Acne Herpes zoster Contact dermatitis Drug eruptions Tumors, etc. Check with your doctor directly to determine the cause of your complaint. If it is still in reasonable condition, generally no special handling is needed. However, if it is suspected that it is dangerous, the doctor may refer you to a specialist (such as a dermatologist or surgeon) for further treatment.
In the meantime, try to avoid wearing clothes that are too tight to minimize the risk of irritation. Also use a bra that is clean, made of soft material, and fits your bust size. If the pain is severe enough, compress the nipple with warm water while taking paracetamol. Don't miss it, keep your breasts clean by diligently bathing and cleaning them so that there is no buildup of dead skin cells.
Hope it helps ya..
