Hello, I want to ask .. in the area of the circle of my nipples on the right there is a lump like swelling that feels very painful and itchy even though it is not touched. This did not happen because I was going to menses, already passed. Is this dangerous? Can I take pain medication? Please help..
Hello Rehan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Breast lumps wherever they are located, including the nipples, are not a natural condition to be found and it is highly recommended to be examined further by a surgeon because these complaints can be caused by:
Inflammation of breast tissue Breast abscess Benign breast tumor Malignant breast breast Regarding the danger of your current complaint, it all depends on the cause. Therefore, the earlier you check the complaint directly to the surgeon, the sooner you get the appropriate therapy so that it does not cause worsening of the condition. In addition to determining the cause, consult a doctor also aims to determine what therapy should be given based on your condition.
Meanwhile, besides checking the complaint to the doctor as early as possible, if the pain is felt to be very disturbing, you are allowed to take pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to help reduce the pain complaints until there is further advice from your doctor. It is highly recommended not to take any other medication besides the pain medication mentioned above, apply pressure, scratch or try to remove the lump itself to prevent worsening complaints.
It is also recommended to further improve the cleanliness of the breast area and do breast self-examination (BSE) routinely every 7-10 days after menstruation is complete to find out if there are other lumps in your breast or not.
I hope this helps.
