Customer Question

Hi. Last evening I noticed a small cluster (about 6) of petechiae on the edge of my left breast. I was treated for an early breast cancer on this breast 7 months ago with lumpectomy and radiotherapy, and the treatment ended at the start of December. I am taking letrozole. Should I worry about this? Otherwise I am feeling great.

No

These can appear for many reasons, usually structural or vascular stress, or even fragile capillaries.

If it is not spreading, not a concern.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
