What are these spots. They are really sore. I tried squeezing but it’s really painful

Sorry for breast pic MNHQ delete if necessary!

They look like montgomery glands ,you shouldn’t squeeze them

Are they new? First thought would be Montgomery's glands which are normal but they shouldn't be sore.
Possibly stupid question but were they sore before you started trying to squeeze them?

Don’t squeeze them 🤦‍♀️

Strawberrycreamsundae Thu 19-Nov-20 12:33:20

Absolutely normal, leave them alone!

They are new and were sore before I squeezed

Hot compress?

Normal for them to be so painful? It hurts just brushing against them.

I’ve had 4 kids, never had this before even when breastfeeding

Are you pregnant by any chance? Mine came up massively when I was.

They're Montgomery glands - don't squeeze them! They get bigger when you're cold/ turned on/ pregnant/ breastfeeding. They're to help babies know where to feed from. If they're definitely new, or painful then maybe see a GP to put your mind at rest, but look like Montgomery glands to me

Montgomery glands can get inflamed sometimes, a hot bath helps.

I’ve breastfed about 8 years total and never had these before, could they be blocked?

I would get in touch with the GP- any change in your breasts should be checked out.

Spottybluepyjamas Thu 19-Nov-20 12:41:23

Yes I wonder if they're blocked - have a hot bath with a hot compress. If they don't get better then I'd see your GP - hope they feel better soon!

Hot bath did nothing sad

I don’t want to waste a doc appt, will give a week or so to settle down

It is not wasting an appointment. You have described a painful change to your breasts, which you haven’t experienced before. That is exactly what doctors‘ appointments are for.

I agree that they need to be checked out. They're new, they're painful, both of these things warrant an appointment.

They're more than likely nothing to worry about and you'll be sent home with some reassurance and a sheepish feeling but just in case they are something that's a problem, the sooner it's known about the better.

You’ve implied in your title that it’s just one breast affected- have I got that right, or is it both?
