Breast Cancer

Little bite

03/13/2008

Question:

Hello, I have a small red spot on each of my breasts, they both appeared overnight on the same night. They are not itchy or sore, i have no swelling or bruising around the area. what do you think it can be? i have had them 7 days and they have reduced in size only slightly.

Answer:

These do not sound worrisome, especially since they are improving. Could they be insect bites? If they increase in size, since you are describing a skin issue, I would see your primary care provider or a dermatologist.
