    I found a red blotch on my left breast, it's flat as sometimes feels a bit itchy, but not most of the time. It's on the left side, and about the size of a quarter. I have been having spotting and bleeding between my periods, so I feel my hormones are out of balance. Could this be causing some type of breast issue? I'm 38 years old. Thank you.

    Hi - I'd doubt the spotting and the patch on your breast are related. If you've had the patch longer than a couple of weeks, you should have it looked at. While not likely, it could be a sign of a rare form of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer. So, if it's just appeared, give it a couple of weeks to go away on its own. If it doesn't - or if it seems to be getting worse (more extensive, itchy/painful, swelled up, etc.), then see a doctor without waiting. Good luck - PJH
