    What is Breast Abscess?

    Breast abscesses are pus-filled lumps that form beneath the breast skin. This lump can develop as a complication of an infection of the breast, commonly known as mastitis.

    Breast abscess is a more common condition in lactating women, though it can also be found in non-lactating women or men. In lactating women, mastitis develops due to the bacterial infection entering the breast tissue while breastfeeding through the baby’s mouth or due to cracked or dry nipples.

    Breast Abscess Surgery

    Breast abscess surgery may not be required immediately. But if it’s not cured in its initial phase, it can be very painful and dangerous. They are usually performed under general anesthesia.

    Abscesses are usually treated with antibiotics, ultrasound-guided needle aspiration, or incision and drainage (I&D) process. Pus is drained out by making an incision during a surgical procedure. At first, an incision is made with a scalpel blade to drain the infected fluid. Surgery will ensure that the abscess is drained of pus and that it does not reoccur. In the end, the incision is closed with a small tube/gauge in it to drain the new pus naturally till the antibiotics take control of the infection.

    Causes & Symptoms of Breast Abscess

    Breast abscesses are caused by infection and typically affect lactating women. It can be caused by a clogged milk duct or a bacterial infection via cracked nipples. In non-lactating females or men, it is developed due to the infection or inflammation of breast tissue (mastitis), which might be caused by a cracked nipple, nipple piercing, breast implant, smoking, or obesity.



    Treatment of Breast Abscess

    The treatment procedure of breast abscess removal is typically conducted as an outpatient, followed by imaging tests such as an ultrasound or a culture of the fluid.


    Open Surgery

    Your doctor may start the course of treatment with antibiotic therapy to check if it's a breast infection. If the abscess is not cured with antibiotics, your doctor may recommend surgery to drain the pus.

    Needle aspirations

    needle aspiration

    This procedure is guided by an ultrasound scan to assess the radiological resolution of the abscess. A large-bore needle is inserted at various locations on the infected area. Then the pus is drained out using the needle syringe. Because it is less painful, technically easier, and relatively inexpensive, this is the preferred method for treating breast abscesses.

    Incision & Drainage

    This is the traditional procedure to remove a breast abscess, in which your doctor will make an incision over the abscess and drain out the pus from the abscess pocket. To prevent further infection, the doctor will clean the wound with sterile saline solution or wick and cover it with a wound dressing.



    Cost of Breast Abscess Removal Surgery

However, it can also vary depending on several factors, such as hospitals in different cities, the extent of severity, and many others.
