Zuska Disease

Women who develop a painful and tender lump under the nipple, with an associated purulent discharge may be suffering from Zuska disease, which is a discharging abscess under the nipple. It is a rare complication of breastfeeding or nipple injury. The abscess may discharge through the nipple or an adjacent fistula.
