Re: Small spot like lumps appearing

Hi Elsfisher

Thanks for posting about the symptoms you’re experiencing.

It’s not possible for us to say what’s causing these changes in your breast and nipple.

Breast changes can happen for many reasons. They may be due to hormonal changes as part of your monthly cycle (period) or due to benign conditions (not cancer).

As you have noticed this change it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your GP to discuss this. This may be a phone appointment, in the first instance due to the current situation. If necessary, your GP might refer you to a breast clinic to get checked out if necessary.

For more details see our booklet Know your breasts: a guide to breast awareness and screening.

Do call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.

The number is 0808 800 6000 (Text relay prefix 18001).

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

Best wishes

Small spot like lumps appearing

About 2 weeks ago I noticed a ‘spot’ at the bottom of my breast, I tried to squeeze it but nothing came out. As the days went on the spot faded but left some purple colouring. A few days later another one appeared above my nipple, except this one was firm and painless and much more noticeable, I tried to squeeze assuming it was a spot and again nothing came out. The next day I noticed my nipple was pussy and has now scabbed over. Last night suddenly loads of little red lumps are appearing with no pain all in the right boob, does anyone think I should be worried about this?
