Found Purple Spot Under My Breast, Resembles Varicose Veins Or Stretch Mark.

I noticed a small purple blotch under one breast that looks like varicose veins or stretch marks. It doesn't hurt, but I don't know if I should be concerned about it. I'm 33 and have 3 kids, so stretch marks are a regular thing for me, but it appeared one day, when I haven't had "new" stretch marks in a long time. I think it could be from an underwire irritation, but I wonder if I should be concerned. My husband is worried about the Victoria's Secret push up bra law suit, but it isn't a rash so I don't think so. Should I be concerned?

Answer

Tasha - Doesn't soound like a breast cancer symptom. Keep your eye on it; if it changes, enlarges, looks infected, starts to itch, or your skin gets dimpled or rough, then best to have it looked at. Or if it doesn't fade or go away in a reasonable amount of time. Its always good to have breast changes checked out if they appear to be permanent. Good luck - PJH
