Can a mammogram be done without squeezing the breasts? Had one yesterday that bruised I do not wish to have more mammograms after that if i never had one gain i will be fine hurt so bad!
No, a mammo: can't be done without compression. However, compression should not cause bruising. Please give it another try next year. Tell the tech what happened to you. They can't do it without compression, but they can do it with less compression so it doesn't cause bruising. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Finished breastfeeding 5 months ago, I have one tender breast, feels bruised and lumpy. What could it be?
Plugged Ducts: You may have a plugged milk duct problem. Be sure and alternate your positioning as you breastfeed the baby to be sure that all portions of the breast are being adequately " drained " as the baby feeds. The "cross cradle" hold does a good job of emptying these outside ducts. Try a warm compress also several times daily. Congrats for breastfeeding your baby! Bravo! ...Read more

I have OCD and can not stop feeling this one area of my breast. I'll poked so hard it's now bruised. Does this make it likely I'll get breast cancer?
No ,it is highly unl: It is not so easy to create Cancer. Trauma certainly can not change our body cells that much, so it is highly unlikely that you have to worry about Cancer unless there is a growth or lump already present there. Sometime in the future you should get a mammogram(when you are near 40 years old) of this breast,just to be sure. But they would not like to do X-rays in younger women.(under 30 year old) ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I got a large bruise on my breast it was bigger than my hand The dr said if I got a lump to go back to the dr now I think I have one how serious is it?
Bruise: It could be a hematoma - a collection of blood - usually due to trauma. Or it could be an enlarging benign cyst. Neither are serious - more of a nuisance and discomfort. May need to be drained. I agree with the re-evaluation. ...Read more
