Bf sucked breast and left a bruise and a hard lump appeared few wks ago. Lump is still there but it has gotten a lot smaller dime size now. Be worried?

Not worry: There is no reason to be concerned, the lump was caused by trauma and should heal completely without causing any problems. Continue to monitor the lump until it goes completely away, and don't worry about it. Repeated trauma to your breast tissue may cause some problems, so I suggest setting some healthy limits with your boyfriend. ...Read more

Hard, painful (feels like a big bruise) lump in between breasts - seemingly on sternum. Does not move. 2-3in from clavicle. Should I get this checked?
