Hi - This sounds like it's hormonal, since it disappeared, then reappeared in a month. You might have a cyst, or a fibroadenoma (benign tumor), both of which can become painful and enlarged around the time of your period. If it disapppears and then reappears again, usually right before your period, then I think you should ask for further tests to see whether you have a cyst that might be drained, or whether anything can be done to help you with the pain. Good luck - PJH

Hi -Thank you for the information you given me...about 14 days ago I got a discharge like thick milk right where I got the biopsy done  .I went to see my doctor and she told me that it was an infection she gived me antibiotics to take for 10 days  and my breast was leaking  like milk/blood for a few days, now the wond has closed (it looks like it)but it feels like my breats still have some liquid inside that is causing some pain "again" and my skin is peeling off , the only good thing is that the redness and lumpines has reduce to a 65 %... she told me that it is happens some times and just to give it time ......but still makes think and wonder what is wrong with my breats.
