It is an inflammatory disease that seriously affects the quality of life and can lead to movement restrictions in the affected area if it is not treated. At the beginning, the diagnosis of the patients is delayed because it appears as a simple acne or a boil and these findings can regress with various treatments. Studies have shown that these patients may be delayed for up to 7 years to be diagnosed with canine breast disease. Patients who have had two or more swelling in their armpits, groin, hips and under breasts in the last 6 months should definitely go to a dermatologist.
