Q: For about a month I have a raised red pimple like bump on the top of my left breast.

For about a month I have a raised red pimple like bump on the top of my left breast about 2 inches above my areola.  At 1st I thought it was a pimple it did have a small white mark in the middle but now it is just red and about the diameter of a pencil.  Anybody have a thoughts or suggestions to cure it?  Thank you, Diane

Diane, keep your eye on this. It doesn't sound like a breast cancer symptom, since it hasn't worsened or changed (right?) in the past month. But if it does change - or if your breast seems to be getting infected (red, hot, swollen, itchy), then best to see a doctor ASAP, OK? Good luck - PJH

Thank you for the information, other than having the white mark in it to start which made me think it was a pimple, no changes.  I will go if I see any changes. DianeSmile
