Mastitis - Diagnosis

​Diagnosis is made on assessment of history and by clinical physical examination. Breast imaging such as breast ultrasound may be needed to assess for abscess formation (collection of pus material within the breast).

Mammograms are usually not needed and can be uncomfortable. A biopsy may be indicated if symptoms persist after a course of antibiotics.
