Hi,I'm new here. I'm 16 years old going on 17 and I have a family history of breast cancer and other types on my mom side. My mom had Breast cancer that spread down to ovarian cancer and to the blood at 27,her mother had ovarian and breast cancer and her grandmother as well. 5 weeks ago I had leaking from both breasts nipples as well as itching,scaling and burning with discoloration. I went to doctors 4 weeks ago and they said I had staph infection. I took antibiotics and then went back because it continued they took a sonogram and said that my lymph nodes were very swollen and my breast had inflammation. I also been having pain in breast so they gave me pain killers. Two days ago I checked my breast because its been a week and a half since my period and I found a hard painless lump on my left breast. Is there a possibility I might have been misdiagnosed ? Could I have breast cancer? Has anyone else had a similar situation?

That lump could be part of the inflammation. I would go back to the doctors though and show them the lump. You may need a longer course of antibiotics.
