I have a black bruise on my breast that I found tonight. Should I be concerned? I don`t recall hurting myself. My mother died of breast cancer.
A bruise that stays the same and then resolves in a week or so should not be a worry. If it continues to grow after noticing it, or if you continue to have a lump there, it should be checked by a breast surgeon.
