I Have 3 Sores One Is An Open Sore On My Left Breast Which Is Not Healing My Breast Feels Heavy

I have been too the doctor with the 2 sores on my breast but he says it is not CANCER because blood is not coming out of my nipple? I should add there are 3 sores now. I just want anwsers my mamogram was abnormal but he never explained what it was. they actually feel like tiny needles pricking me. A bra is too uncomfortable too wear although I do wear one when I go out.Can someone explain this please?

Answer

Hi - This sounds like a very confusing situation, and not sure if the confusion comes from the doctor, or from miscommunication between you. Having an "abnormal" mammogram without further diagnostic tests isn't acceptable; neither is "it's not cancer because there's no blood coming out of your nipple." I'd suggest you ask for a long enough appointment with your doctor to get some answers - like, what's up with the mammogram? And, why are these sores on my breast not being diagnosed and treated? You'll have to advocate for yourself here, OK? You need to find out what's causing the sores, and get them taken care of. Good luck - PJH
