hello are you there? please answer so we can chat
the lump is sore when pressed, I feel pain during the day but its not all the time.
well your intuition is very likely to be correct
all the signs and symptoms point to a clogged duct which has become infected
this explains the white bleb and also the tender lump
of course you must be worried about a cancer
but the fact that it is a tender lump and associated with this symptom in the nipple points to an infected duct
do not worry about this, it will go away with infections
of course you will need all the tests to make sure it is a lump and not something else
do you have any questions?
would I need antibiotics if there is an infection, or would it just go on its own? I will still go for the tests but thank you for putting my mind at rest.
yes you will need antibiotics for this
it would be better to take antibiotics and no doubt your doctors will prescribe this for you
