Here’s when you rush to the doctor: if you have severe tenderness, signs of an infection, or a lump, a mass, or discharge. Then, there’s a chance it might be cancer, or it may be a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa, which is not life-threatening but is unpleasant and may cause scarring. “It’s like having a big pimple that opens up in the breast or groin area,” Dr. McDonald-Mosley explains. It’s generally cured with antibiotics, so if you’ve got one of these boob pimples, get it taken care of.
