Breast Cancer

Redness of breast

04/10/2008

Question:

I have a place on my breast that is about a quarter in size and is about half on the aureola. It is raised up just a little, does not itch, but it is sore in the center when I touch it. I can find no detection of an insect bite. Should I see a doctor?

Answer:

I think it would be reasonable for a physician to evaluate this.
