Chronic Mastitis, Mastalgia, and Breast Pain: A Narrative Review of Definitions, Bacteriological Findings, and Clinical Management
Whereas the management of acute mastitis seems clear, there is little scientific evidence to support management of chronic mastitis/breast pain. This article reviews bacteriological findings, their possible meanings, and their use in clinical settings. Clinical experience, newer and more accurate microbiological techniques, and the growing knowledge about our metagenome have many insights to offer.
