Hi - This could be age-related; you might be getting "age spots" on your breasts, just as you get them on your hands. While this doesn't sound like a breast cancer symptom, keep your eye on it. If your breast begins to feel sore, itchy, hot, or painful; or if the spots look like they're getting infected, then best to see a doctor, OK? Also, if you seem to be getting a lot more spots quickly, call the doctor to find out what's causing them. Good luck - PJH

Hi, but im turning 16 in like a months so i dont think it would be age spots. and ive been looking it up but im not getting much its saying it could be because of pregnancy but im not pregnant. and its also saying it could be some sort of fungous but if i scratch it, it doesnt scratch off. do you have any other ideas what it could be?

Ah - you're very young. OK, then it's surely not age spots! And it's surely not breast cancer, either, as this isn't a breast cancer symptom, and your chances of having BC at your age are less than one in a million. Sorry, I don't know what it could be - it sounds like something you'd check with a dermatologist about, OK? PJH
