Am I worried for no reason

Hi, im 43 years old and for around 6 weeks have had a very itchy left breast. No sign of skin irritation that could be causing it. I have a small purple bruise also (noticed couple months ago) - around 2mm in diameter. My nipple is also more sensitive and sometimes painful. No lumps that I can feel. Sometimes get sharp pains in my breast and feel breathless. Im deffo not pregnant. Would be gp think im ocer reacting?

You need peace of mind about this so a trip to your GP would be a good idea.  Any breast changes should be checked out but it does not mean that it is breast cancer, there are other benign breast conditions.  Give your GP a call and make an appointment. 


Sending you hugs and let us know how get on if you want to
