Hi. I woke up this morning with a bruise on my left breast. It looks like burst blood vessels. What would cause this? Thanks

Watch for 1-2 weeks: A bruise on the breast can be caused by trauma which can cause bleeding under skin especially if you are taking aspirin but it can also be somethings less likely like a bleeding disorder, low platelets or rarely, a tumor can show up with a bruise. If it is painless (non- tender) then it is unlikely due to trauma. Watch if it changes or gets bigger, then go see your doctor. Otherwise it may go away ...Read more

I woke up this morning and my chest felt like I had a huge bruise on it when I pressed on it... What's wrong?

Chest tenderness: Tenderness when you press on your chest is usually an indication of musculoskeletal orinin as opposed to internal organs. If you are suffering from other symptoms like chest pain with activity, nausea, or pressure feeling in your chest, then this could mean something is going on internally. At you age this would be rare without some underlying condition. ...Read more

It can be a slow to improve problem that comes and goes. And maybe from a virus. The cartilage is slow to heal because of poor circulation. Try Tylenol, (acetaminophen) heat or Advil. ...Read more

Try another brand?: If the child and the vest have been evaluated at the pediatric pulmonologist's office, and everything seems to be working as it's supposed to, then that does sound mysterious. If it is agreed that a vest is still needed, maybe one can try a different brand of vest, or use it at a different time of day. Is the child being taken away from an activity because he has to go use the vest? ...Read more

Musculoskeletal.: Your discomfort and shortness of breath are likely musculoskeletal due to the excessive pressure upon the muscles and bones of the chest wall. The MA would not have been able to press deep enough through the chest wall to affect the heart, lungs or aorta directly. But if your symptoms persist more than a few days then you should see the doctor. ...Read more
