A diagnosis of a breast abscess may be delayed or missed because some symptoms, such as a breast lump, mimic symptoms of other diseases and conditions. These include fibrocystic breasts, breast cyst, breast cancer, and mastitis. Early symptoms of a breast abscess may also be masked or hidden by engorged breasts.
Rare type of breast cancer without a lump: There is a less common form of breast cancer called inflammatory breast cancer. Its symptoms can be an inflammation of the breast tissue, such as with a breast rash with redness and warmth, but not necessarily a physical breast lump. This type of breast cancer should be considered as an uncommon possibility for certain types of breast symptoms.
