Should I be worried about bump on breast? I have a small bruised bump on my bottom right breast. It does not hurt unless im wearing my bra or if I apply pressure to it. When I touch it it feels soft I thought it might be a boil but im not sure.
Any breast lesion should be evaluated by a doctor. If it is infectious then you will need antibiotic treatment. If the diagnosis is unclear then you may need an ultrasound or even a mammogram depending on your doctors findings.
If in fact it is just a bruise (hematoma) then it will go away in time. An anti-inflammatory like advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen can help with the healing process and with pain.
Good luck. ...Read more
