Any tenderness or warmth to the breast? Bruise as in black and blue? Any trauma involved? Any unusual bruising elsewhere on your body? Other medical conditions?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
NO trauma, tenderness or warmth, black and blue and yellow for about 3-4 days now. No other bruising anywhere else. Hypertension and hypothyroidism.
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 6 years ago.
Well, it sounds like a resolving bruise, and, if the lump is new and mobile, that isn't likely to be anything serious. It's possible you had an insect bite there. simply because, without trauma or bruising elsewhere to indicate a blood coagulation condition, I can't think of anything else that would cause this. I do think it'd be a good idea to have a doctor look at this, though.
