I Have An Itchy Breast With A Red Spot On The Other Side From Itching, Small Lump Under Red Spot

or at least i think it is a lump. breast itches severly and is becoming raw from me scratching. should i worry?

Answer

Hi — Wow, you don't want to scratch yourself raw! I'd call the doctor and make an appointment to see what's up. Breast cancer isn't usually characterized by itchiness, but inflammatory breast cancer can feel itchy, along with your breast being hot/red/swollen. So it's worth getting it checked out - to set your mind at ease, AND get some relief from the scratching! Good luck - PJH
