How do you treat a breast abscess? What is a breast abscess?

An abscess in the breast is a collection of pus beneath the inflamed skin. It is commonly encountered in association with nipple injury, such as a bite or abrasion, during breast feeding. In other instances it results from injury to the breast with a needle or instrument. The abscesses usually heal completely and permanently after the pus is let out by an incision. Where an assumed breast abscess is seen without pregnancy or injury, one suspects an unusual type of infection or tumor.
