I have a bruise on my right breast very near my right armpit. The bruise seems to have a bit of fluid as well. My right arm seems mildly tingly every now and then. Have had this for about three days now. Never had anything like this ever before. Should I be worried?

Thanks for your query.     

Bruise on the left breast with a bit of fluid and mild tingling is generally due to allergy to some allergen , post mosquito , insect bite or some local infection . Generally such bruises heal itself or with local application with in day or two .As it is still persisting after after three days ,so medical evaluation should not be avoided.

Nice to hear from you again

Generally small bruises of short duration are not XXXXXXX to health or life.
Redness, pain, swelling, any purulent discharge indicates Infection. By keeping the area dry & clean & with application of antiseptic ointment bruise may heal. If it don`t respond medical evaluation is advised.

Hope I have answered your question well to your satisfaction.
