Date Posted: Nov 07 2012 at 10:05pm
Or should I go to the ER?
 
I'm stuck and I really don't know what to do. Okay so I got in the shower and noticed a lump in my breast. It's really tender to the touch. I took a hot towel and put it on there, nothing. I squeezed where the lump was and there's blood and pus coming out of my breast.
 
omg, tears are coming. If I make no sense, please excuse me
 
I look up the symptoms and it says cancer. I need to go the ER right now don't I? Am I over reacting and should I just call my doctor in the morning??

I'd go do the ER.  Even if I feel I might be over reacting....find out what it is now...if anything for your own peace of mind.  You won't be able to sleep tonight worrying.   Go.

Hug I'm sorry you're going through this right now. I wouldn't go to the ER because they will just tell you to go to your doctor in the morning. Stay off the internet, it could just be a cyst.

a trip to the er for your symptoms will leave you waiting for hours to be told they will need to follow up with you 
call your primary in the morning, if you have one ,and schedule an appointment, they'll let you know if you need to be referred to an oncologist

stay off of google and med related websites. we don't want you stressing yourself out

It sounds like your lump is on the outside...I think if you felt a lump on the inside that could be an indication..make an appt with your doctor.

The lump is on the inside. The blood and pus is coming from my nipple not the lump. I feel it inside my breast. I just called the on call nurse with my clinic and left a message. I'm waiting for them to call back now.

If I might ask.......where is the location of the lump?  I used to get boils and cysts under my breasts right on the crack between breast and sternum before my reduction.  They would be extremely painful and tender.   Put a hot towel on it for a couple of days and they would pop and leak pus and blood like a pimple....not to be gross.    same thing in my under arm.
 
 
I didn't want to tell u it might only be a cyst and be wrong....but it could be.

It's inside my breast, the lump is felt when I squeeze right behind my areola. When I sqeeze is when blood and pus comes out. There is no raised bump or anything but when I feel it, it's a little painful

If it "came out of nowhere"

It is most likely NOT cancer. STAY OFF GOOGLE. I have fibrocystic breast and google sent me up the wall. 
Take a deep breath and relax. It may very well be a cyst that ruptured. 
Does the lump seem to move around a bit when you push it?

No more google! Google is horrible when it comes to stuff like this. It is so generalized and not reputable. Google will give you the worst case scenario and is not descriptive. It immediately says "cancer", but it could be benign (even with your symptoms)! Only a doctor can tell you for sure! Doctor knows best, but I just want you to have a peace of mind tonight! Hug And like dani said, if it moves thats a good sign.

what you have is a cyst. If it hurts then it is not cancer. cancer lumps don't hurt. I get cyst occasionally that is why I am opting for a breast reduction. As per my doctor when I first got my cyst. If it hurts it isn't cancer. Apply a hot towel or a compress so it will come to a head and wrap your breast with gauze so when it does come to a head you won't make a mess. Keep the area clean at all times and you should be fine. Also rub some peroxide on it. HTH I'm no doc but you don't have cancer you have a benign cyst.

Yeah I had a lump in my breast back in high school. My mom (a nurse) freaked out and took me to the doctor. He checked it and pretty much said if it hurts it aint cancer. It ended up being an infection. Took an antibiotic for a few days and it disappeared.

The first thing is to please quit squeezing your breast.  Call your physician early this morning.  If your physician is unable to see you  today please go to the ER.  At some ER technicians are available 24/7 to do mammograms. 

It is best to have a Physician check your breast, rather to seek a diagnosis online. A medical person  cannot diagnose some symptoms online, your breast need to be physically checked.   It is not unusual to have a cyst or carbuncle, right after or during a menstrual cycle at any area of the body.  You are in my thoughts, please update.

I will keep you in my thoughts OP. Been there! Don't mean to add to the long list of possible causes, but it does sound like an infection. I have always been told that breast cancer/tumors do not hurt. Blood and puss are signs of bacteria/infection.

This appointment did not go well at all. I didn't get called until 10:35 am. When I got to the back, they took my vitals (the routine stuff) then made me wait another 15 minutes. My Dr. was in and out of the room when I finally went in. She kept asking me the same questions over and over each time she came back into the room. Then asked me when was my LMP and proceeded to attempt to do an inspection of my stomach (to feel my uterus). I had to scream to her I wasn't pregnant she's checking the wrong thing this last time. So she felt my breast, squeezed it, saw the puss, and said "Oh, it's just an infection it's nothing serious (mastitis), you're still breast feeding, right?". My baby is damn near 2, no I'm not breastfeeding and I didn't tell her this. She's like it's also common in women who don't breast feed. She wrote out a prescription and sent me home. I have to follow up in 10 days.
 
I had to literally stop her in her tracks for an explanation. I've never experienced this with her. I felt rushed, like she wasn't paying attention and downplaying my symptoms just so she can tend to her other patients whom she might have also been rushing as well.
 
I'm looking online to see if I can find another dr. in my area.

Ugh I hate doctors like that! Angry Rush their patients, barely making eye contact and don't take their time. She is acting like you were going in for the common cold smh. This is why they are putting a "sensitive/compassionate" behavioral and psychological section on the new MCAT so less assholes can be admitted into med school.

Sorry for your experience. I hope this makes you feel at least a little bit better after going. But I agree with getting a second opinion or just another doctor in general. Still no need to be concerned like last night though!

Time to move on to 2nd opinion.

I'm so sorry that she didn't seem like she cared. Get a second opinion. Don't stop until you get a detailed explanation!!!!

Yes please. Doctors like that do not need to be doctors. They are in a customer service based profession.

I hope everything is ok, this post made my heart feel heavy.

I don't know what the diagnostic tests are but I know there is a blood test for breast cancer and a biopsy ... I wouldn't bother with a mammogram considering you see the lump

I would not rest until I had both

Especially with pus/blood coming out of your nipple plus your family history

Next time tell them your family history first, try a women's health specialty office that's next to the hospital

Mzmee I really hope you feel better mentally. 
I echo the second opinion sentiment. 
Stay calm, toss out any negative thoughts. Replace it with only positive mantras. Our minds toy around with the worse case scenario over and over again. The mind is self surviving. It's doing it's job of protecting you.

But try to focus on slooooooow deep breathing. Watch something funny before you go to bed. Get on the phone. Just try to find a positive outlet until your next appointment.

I know you're anxious. Repeat to yourself that you are safe. That you're taking the necessary steps to handle this immediately. Talk that anxiety down. It will work.

I'm wishing you the very best Heart

IA with this.
But also do get a mammogram so they can determine what else is going on in your breast--or an ultrasound.  I saw a specialist when I had a suspicious lump for awhile.  It did resolve on its own (no drainage however.)  Gods grace to you.

Doesn't seem like a medical emergency. Call your doctor or go to a Urgent care place.

I concur or a MRI.  The lousy doctor yesterday should have expedited the process, by obtaining a sample of the fluid and send it to the lab for testing.  No biopsy is needed at this point, doctors need films as a guide.

I don't know much about it ... you would definitely know more than I would Mrs Claudie.

But I wouldn't rest until I get results back that they sampled the growth and it is not cancerous.  But then again, I don't know if an MRI can conclusively tell you whether or not it's cancer, it might I don't know.   

Women I know have had mammograms that didn't detect cancer that was already spreading, plus you already know there's a lump.   I agree a scan can help detect lumps other than the one you are concerned with.

I read somewhere that there is a blood test that tests markers for breast cancer but I don't know if it's common

Good to hear that she's okay.  Most of the time lumps and discharges are harmless (not cancerous)

I'm okay ladies. Sorry I didn't update. I found another doctor in downtown Chicago that is supposedly great. So far just from setting the appointment I have high hopes. The assistant spoke to me in great detail about what I was experiencing.  
 
The anti-biotics helped a little. The lump went down a great deal but there is still a lump.
 
As for my doctor, she's my ob/gyne. She knows all my family history and I completed another
family history when I was there. I have been going to her for a little over 18 years??? Then for her to come in and out of the room and ask questions that had sh*t to do with me was just wow...
 
As far as me asking about going to the ER, have you guys ever panicked and was so caught up in your problem/issue, you can't figure out what to do? I was all up in my emotions. My husband has been making me feel a lot better about things. The morning I went to the clinic he had just walked in the house from a double shift and walked right back out to take me to the clinic.
 
I knew he was tired so I ignored him snoring loud as hell in the waiting area. I even appreciated him coming out of his work induced coma to randomly utter "that's bullsh*t" to the doctor when she gave a rush diagnosis. LOL
