    A hard lump on my breast is leaking puss and blood out of the lump not my nipple

    I reached over my head yesterday and realized that my right breast hurt very bad. I took a break from work to see if I could see anything and there is quite a big hard lump on the inside/bottom area of my breast. I'm out of town so I thought I would just keep checking it to see if it changes and have it checked out when I get home BUT this afternoon I went to change cloths and noticed it was leaking puss from the lump. I pressed on it to see if it still hurt and it quite a bit of puss came out and now if you touch it milky blood is comming out. This is not my comming out my nipple it is comming out of a hard lump about 4in wide on the bottom inside of my breast. It will be about 2 1/2 weeks before I can even get back to my home state. Has anyone ever heard of this? Since stuff came out of it, it has not gotten any smaller and it continues to hurt. I don't feel it appropriate to go to an ER since it's not life or death but I don't know what else to do except wait to get home. Please send me any info if you've ever heard of anything like this.

    Hi - I think it's entirely appropriate to go to the ER for this. It sounds like an incipient infection, and the last thing you want to do is wait 2 1/2 weeks to get it examined and treated. You might try going to the hospital, and asking if they have a walk-in clinic, if you'd prefer not to go to the ER for insurance reasons. But you should DEFINITELY see a doctor about this ASAP, OK? Good luck - PJH
