Mondor's disease / get confirmed / rule out underlying tumor or so
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.
This is a condition called iodiopathic thombophlebitis of the superficial vein.
The exact reason is not known why it occurs.Mondor's disease is a rare condition, which involves the thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins of the breast and anterior chest wall
This is usually a self-limiting disorder and does not cause any aftereffects. So nothing to worry about, provided you have to consult a Doctor to get a confirmed diagnosis by clinical evaluation, ultrasonography of the area, the breasts and the axilla to rule out any underlying pathology like a tumor or so.
Once confirmed, needs no special treatment other than symptomatic like a painkiller with anti-inflammatory medicines like Ibuprofen if it suits you.
May be hot compresses help.
