I should start off by saying I’m 20 years old, and no one in my family has had breast cancer before that I know of. For the past week, my boobs have felt extremely heavy, tight, and sore. My right one hurts especially near the nipple area. I blamed this pain on my period coming up in about ten days, but now I’m not so sure. Yesterday, I noticed a red mark on the side of my right boob. I would say it’s about 3 or 4 inches from my nipple. I was confused, and thought that maybe it was a small stretch mark. However, I have just noticed that there is now a scab on the red mark. The scab was not there yesterday. I have felt all over my boob, and I do not feel any lumps. I showed my mom, and she says that something must have scratched me. What should I do? Does this seem like something I should be worried about? How long should I monitor the mark before going to the doctor?
