Swollen nipple

Hi. I had moderate pain on right tonsils since 3 days and it has now reduced. And today morning, there's a swelling above my right nipple and it's red and swollen. It is also painful . Is it a systemic lymph node infection ?

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
It could be due to some insect sting or a small infection. But to know what exactly it is, you have to consult a general surgeon in person for further evaluation and management. 
After examining you he will suggest you further.
Best regards.

Tonsils have no drainage into lymph node near nipple...so it cannot be systemic infection swelling but coincidentally there might be insect trail or bite during sleep or hair follicle infection leading to cellulitis....warm compress..oral and topical antibiotic use will solve your problem

Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety.... It is suggestive of infection may be mastitis... Detailed clinical examination will rule out other possible causes ...you will require course of antibiotics to clear infection... I would suggest you to consult nearest gynecologists or surgeon they will do the needful.
