Dark Purple Lump Under Breast

breast lump, dark purple

Answer

We aren't doctors here, simply breast cancer survivors who are well-read on the topic, so we can't diagnose what your purple lump is. It could simply be a bruise, but it could also be an infection or even cancer. You will find our article on the differences between breast infections and inflammatory breast cancer useful. If this just happened, and you think it might be a bruise, you could wait a few days to see if it changes like bruises do. Otherwise, it would be a good idea to have a doctor check it out. I hope that it turns out to be a minor problem.
