Hey,so my boyfriend is gonna give me a hickey on top of my breast not near the nipple or anything if he does will it cost cancer or anything and how long till it goes away ?

A bruise: A hickey is a bruise. Biting or sucking the skin breaks tiny blood vessels and makes them bleed which causes a bruise. It won't cause cancer but it will take at least a week, if not longer, to heal up and disappear. And don't believe anyone who tells you toothpaste will make it heal faster! ...Read more

The side of my nipple is slightly dimpling was that mean I have a breast cancer?

See breast doctor.: Dimpling of the skin and/or nipple inversion are both breast changes that can be associated with breast cancer, therefore, i recommend that you see your primary care doctor for a referral to a breast specialist.

If there is tumor in close proximity to the nipple, the nipple and areola are removed with the breast tissue, and a new nipple and areola can be reconstructed later. ...Read more
