My Left Breast Itches With Warmth And Blue Veins Could This Be Serious?

This started about 6 months ago, I do have pain in my breasts(both), and the itching comes and goes, along with looking swollen with "blue" veins running through where it itches. I did have a breast reduction about 12 years ago, but the itching and swelling is not near the scars.

Answer

Amy, considering this has been going on for 6 months, it's probably not inflammatory breast cancer, which would have worsened by now. And pain in both your breasts probably isn't a sign of breast cancer - it's would be increibly unusual for it to present symptoms in both breats at once. Nevertheless, any breast change should be checked out by a doctor, so best to make an appointment and see what's up, OK? Good luck - PJH
