Red pin pricks across chest, tender breast, arm pits itchy, constipation. Bowel cancer?

Hi I have noticed tiny red pin pricks across my chest area? My breasts have gone up a cup size almost over night and feel heavy at times, I get a weird sensation a few times through the day kind of like the feeling of when my breast milk came in ( I am not pregnant and my youngest is 5) my breasts have been tender and my arm pits are very itchy at times which I ve been experiencing on and off for a year or so. I have also had a change in my bowel habbits, used to go every day but now I go constantly for a few days and then not again for 4 days. My dad passed away last year of bowel cancer (actually had mucosal melonoma) does all of this sound normal?

Hi kirstie,

Your history points towards some insect bite allergy. It may be even due to other cosmetic or dye allergy. You have to visit a physician and get yourself examined. If there is any suspicion of cancer you may hv to undergo mammogram and an FNAC. Cancer in your dad certainly increses your risk of getting some other cancer. So early diagnosis of cancer is worthy with proper screening.
