I am 29 years old. I have dimples the right outter side of my breast. I dont feel a lump. Could this mean I have cancer. My Mom had cancer at age 31.
Skin dimpling can certainly be a sign of an underlying cancer, and although I would expect you to be able to feel a mass if cancer were responsible for the dimpling. Given your family history I certainly think that you should be evaluated.
