Chronic Granulomatous Mastitis
I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. From what I've read, it sounds like it's relatively rare and there can be other causes for CGM. Tuberculosis is one, but it can also be caused by an auto-immune response, sarcoidosis or Wegener's granulomatosis. It can also be caused by infection, but I think it would be acute mastitis if that were the case,
and that most often occurs within two to six years after a pregnancy. I hope your doctor will be able to answer all your questions and provide treatment.
Have you ever been exposed to tuberculosis that you're aware of? Have you had TB tests? Because you live in the Philippines, I believe there's a relatively high rate of TB there, so you may have been exposed without even knowing it. Please follow up with your doctor and take good care of yourself.
Wishing you all the best,
