I have this rash on my left breast for a month. I don't know why it's not healing.

Posted , 3 users are following.

At the start it was like a blackhead. I tried to heal it by squeezing. It inflamed I think, but it is not healing. What could be the reason? I have breast cancer?

    Hi Anna,

    The deeper the lesion and more trauma you did when squeezing the lesion, the longer it is going to take to heal. Did any drainage come out of the "blackhead" when you squeezed it?

    You need to go to your physician for a medical exam to evaluate your breasts.

    Anna,

    If it was white thick drainage, it may have been an epidermal inclusion cyst. You still need to see a physician. The problem with these cysts is that these recur as the cell wall is usually retained when the lesion is squeezed.

    Best Regards
