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
