Re: painful lump under right nipple
Try putting some hot towels on the area and see if that helps with your pain. The lump can be a block milk duct and that may help alleviate the pain. You may also have mastititis, which is an infection of one of your milk ducts.
Is there a doctor who is covering your doctors practice while he is out sick? Call the office and find out when they expect him to return and to inquire who is covering his practice. Explain your discomfort and see if they can get the covering doctor to phone in an antibotic to your pharmacy. Keep the appointment for next Friday, however, if the covering physcian will not call in the prescription, than I suggest that you see if your local hospital has a walk in clinic. Go there and get treated.
I hope you are feeling better soon.
