Can A Pimple On Your Breast Turn Into Breast Cancer?

I am 29 and just had a baby in February. I started getting pimples on my breasts once I was pregnant. I've had maybe three or four since then. Not being pregnant I still got another pimple. Now it feels somewhat of a tip of an eraser under my skin in that spot and none of the other pimples have felt like this. They have gone away or there is a scar where they once were. The area is a little red. I'm not sure if I should go to the doc and get it checked out. It's been about 2 weeks since it first was shown. Is this something I should be concerned about? Is it normal to get pimples on your breasts?

Answer

The skin on the breast can have any of the skin problems like pimples you get in other parts of your body, and they will not cause breast cancer. You say that this new spot feels different than the pimples you got before, so you may need to have a doctor take a look at it. Breast cancer lumps are usually not as close to the top of your skin as what you are describing, but it might be some sort of cyst in your skin. If it lasts longer than a month, or if it gets red and inflamed, check in with the doctor to find out what it is and if it needs treatment.
