2 weeks ago I noticed a red spot with a lump on my left breast. Feels warm Since then the redness has went away but the small lump hasnt.

Small lump: As described, it sounds like you had a localized abscess or type of localized infection (with the redness, palpable lump, and warmth). Since the lump is still there, you need to have it evaluated to be safe to assure it does not need antibiotics or to assure it is not something more serious. Best wishes. ...Read more

Have a tiny red spot on skin under right chest (upper rib). Not raised or itchy. Looks like cut but isn't.I have 2 others on left pectoral (also tiny)?

Not to worry: This sounds like what are called cherry hemangiomas. These are little gifts that you get from one or both of your parents. They are simply made up of hundreds of small blood vessels. These growths never turn bad. You will continue to get more as you get older. They are very easily treated with a laser without leaving any marks. ...Read more

What to do if I have a red spot on the side of my breast. Is this ibc?

NO!!!!: Inflammatory breast cancer is a very rapidly enlarging redness of the breast in one spot, rapidly spreading across the whole breast, and sometime parts of chest or back. Unlike an abscess, which is a local pocket of pus, is usually not painful. Other causes are a benign skin growth, or pimple. See a good breast surgeon right away! Good luck! ...Read more

Do an image search for cherry angiomas and compare what yours looks like. There can be a lot of variations on how they look. ...Read more

I've had a brown/red spot under my breast for awhile and now it has a hole on the side that you can see into and bleeds. Wondering what this could be.

I've had a brown/red spot under my breast for awhile and now it has a hole on the side that you can see into and bleeds. Wondering what this could be.

Unusual skin lesion: Definitely needs to be looked at by a physician and perhaps biopsied even. There are many types of skin lesions that could look like that, but the hole and bleeding concerns me. Please make the appointment and do not delay. Hopefully, it is some kind of a sebaceous cyst and not something worse. Difficult to tell without seeing it. An uploaded picture in a private consult would be instructive, too. ...Read more

Should I get checked for a red spot on my breast I think it might of been a bee that almost stung me. It hurts a lot when I move sometimes?

Should I get checked for a red spot on my breast I think it might of been a bee that almost stung me. It hurts a lot when I move sometimes?

Wait, then go: If you think it was caused by a bee or insect, then the area should slowly get better in time, try ice immediately if swelling after a sting, then warm compresses and Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) for pain. If the rash persists, and does not go away, then seek medical evaluation of the area. Good luck. ...Read more

Hemangioma: Little red fits in the skin anywhere are likely to be hemmangiomas. These are very common and if no consequence. They usually last a long time like a mole. If you push I it then it will blanch when the blood goes out and refills immediately. They can be removed if they are larger. See your doctor to be sure. ...Read more
