Mastitis is the term used to describe an infection in the tissue of one or both breasts. Typically occurring in women who are breastfeeding, Mastitis causes inflammation of the tissue, which applies pressure to the milk ducts. Symptoms of Mastitis include lumps in or around the infected area, pain and tenderness in one breast, fever and skin irritation.
