non-puerperal Mastitis -Updated
I rarely post here anymore. My doctors think I have non-puerperal Mastitis. I'm not nursing (weaned my daughter a year ago at 2) so it non-puerperal. I've never had mastitis before and am still not certain. My right breast has been sore for 2 weeks. Now it's extremely painful and I'm taking ibprofien. Even walking hurts it. It's been feeling more solid over the last week or so as well. I saw my OB this morning who thought I had a large cyst. Sent me to ultrasound right away. They did it, then the radiologist or whoever reads them I think came in and did a second then talked to some breast specialist. He thinks it not likely breast cancer and likely Mastitis. I never got a call back from my doctor on her views. He said to return in 6-weeks for a ultrasound and to go back to the doctors when it's red, hot or leaking. I asked what about how much it already hurts and he said ice packs and such and ibprofien. So basically I just wait for it to become even worse. Is this normal? I never had Mastitis. Does it really slowly come on over weeks? My ultrasound did show thickening I guess which is the large more solidness I feel.
