Mastitis occurs when breast tissue gets inflamed, usually due to a blocked milk duct caused by breastfeeding. Mastitis can lead to infection.
A microdochectomy or total duct excision involves removing a milk duct (or disc of milk ducts) from your breast. The procedure will stop a continued nipple discharge and help find out what is causing the discharge.
There are many different types of breast diseases.
