Spots on breast


Re: Spots on breast


Hello laura12345678


Thank you for posting.


Finding a new breast change can cause worry. Breast changes can happen for many reasons. They may be part of normal development, bruising to the breast, hormonal changes as part of your monthly cycle (period) or due to benign conditions (not cancer). You’ll probably find your breasts change quite a bit throughout your life.


As you have noticed this change you can contact your GP to have it checked. Although you mention you are having problems getting in to see your GP, it is likely they will be offering telephone appointments during the coronavirus outbreak, so they will still be able to assess your symptoms.


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

Spots on breast



i have been concerned about my left breast. I have this red, vainey bump on the top and a bruise on the side. I don’t not know where either could have come from. The bruise is turning yellow, which I took as a good sign. I’ve had some Itching, but itchy is common for me  I’m a little worried and havIng trouble getting into my dr right now
