it was there for about 1 week only (I think I was premenstrual at the time), then after picking at it on the seventh day, it seemed to burst and thick sebaceous stuff came away. I know that a Montgomery gland is just that, but my question is, should I get this checked out? Can this be normal?
I am almost 38years old, this has never happened to either of my nipples before and it hasn't seemed to have returned, that is, my nipples look normal again.
I have done a breast self-examination and just 3weeks ago, my doctor also examined my breasts (before the blocked Montgomery gland appeared) and everything seemed fine (ie no lumps). Last year I had a breast Ultrasound which was normal.
What could be the cause of a blocked Montgomery gland?
And is there some sort of test aside from mammogram and ultrasound for this sort of thing? because I have heard of invasive ductal carcinoma being mistaken before for benign areolar hyperplasia...
