Hi, Im Ilana and im 26 years problem started a few years ago when i got my nippled pierced...i got an infection in my breast (which i took out the piercing right away) i saw a doctor and he gave me some antibiotics which worked.  I had a baby a year ago and got clogged milk ducks and again got on some medicine but this time it didnt work so i went and got a ultrasound and they said it was just scare tissue from the piercing.  about 2 months ago i went to see the doctor again and he looked at it and felt the lump and said that there wasnt anything to worry about and said that i didnt even have an infection which i didnt think was true cause its painful, tender, and a little discolored but he just dismissed me.  Now i have 2 lumps in the same area and a doctor thats not taking me seriously.  I would just like your opinions on this or if any of you have advice on how to treat a breast infection.  Thank you.

Ilana, please consider finding a new doctor or getting a second opinion. It very well could be nothing serious or just an infection, but they need to take you seriously. Breast cancer in a 26 year old is devastating, and no one should be dismissed. I would also suggest getting copies of your medical records so you can take it to the next doctor and have your own records.

Good luck.
