Breast Cancer

Little bite



Hello, I have a small red spot on each of my breasts, they both appeared overnight on the same night. They are not itchy or sore, i have no swelling or bruising around the area. what do you think it can be? i have had them 7 days and they have reduced in size only slightly.


These do not sound worrisome, especially since they are improving. Could they be insect bites? If they increase in size, since you are describing a skin issue, I would see your primary care provider or a dermatologist.
