Brief Answer:
Bruise is not a concern

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns about bruise on left breast.

Bruise on breast occasionally occurs due to pressure on breast while sleeping or brushing against an object unknowingly or by tight garments like braceries.

Let me reassure you that this is not cancer and not any breast problem to worry about. This bruise will heal in a week's time.

I hope I clarified your doubt.

Let me know if you need any more help.
