Ask your doctor: I am an obgyn so I am honestly not too familiar with the reason why they were looking for this protein. I don't think it is related. Are you being treated for breastcancer? There are many reasons why protein can be elevated or why your doc may be looking. Calling to find out what the meaning is is the best advise. The ulcer/lesion on your breast may be and probably is not related at all!
