Is there a link between having a breast infection during nursing and years later developing DCIS or IDC? I am curious because this has happened to me and wonder if anyone else has made the connection.

    Funny you ask this question. The same thing happened to me. Left breast infection while breast feeding and DCIS in left breast. Interesting....

    Me too! I got many infections while nursing my son to 11 mos. He's 19 now and I've got Dcis!

    I had mastitis but that was 48 years ago while nursing my son. I don't remember if it was in one or both breasts. It had occurred to me that there could be a connection. It stopped me from breast feeding which of course is one of many BC issues.
