Having dark lump under breast

I have a black spot that has a little bump and looks like a nipple under my breast. Sometimes it is itchy but it s not painful at all. Is it breast cancer lump? I am 30yrs old and my family does not have any history of breast cancer.

Hello, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

As your symptoms suggest, probably you have an accessory nipple/areola; was it since birth? This is not a rare condition & may cause symptoms of itching, suggesting a fungal infection or eczema. Your age is not for a breast cancer. Still, for a final & firm diagnosis, I suggest that you consult a General Surgeon. You may or may not require a biopsy. You may also get it removed for cosmetic reasons. Wishing you best of health.

I noticed a dark purple/blue bruise on my left breast about 2 weeks ago while getting ready for work in the morning. It was about the size of a dime or a little smaller. When I came home that afternoon, I changed clothes, and it had tripled in size to about the size of a silver dollar. Horrible looking, but did not hurt to the touch. Week one went fine, no pain. The beginning of the second week, it started to ache now and then spontaneously. A couple of nights I felt lousy, like flu ache. The bruise seems to be getting smaller, but now can feel a small pea sized ball in that same area. Any ideas?

I am 65, I had a mammogram 2 weeks ago, I got a letter a week or so later & said I was fine, & did not feel any thing until last Fri. night when I started having pain in my right breast. I took a look & saw a light yellow coloring & felt a bump just under the skin above the nipple, today is Sun. & it is still there, should I be worried or is that something that happens sometimes?

I have a lump in my breast, I felt it and I let it slide. Today I noticed that the lump is now purple and dark and it is sore. I have read that if you re about to start your period you may get random lumps due to hormones. I am not sure what this is. I am 19 years old.

Hi! I am male 28 years old. This what I will explain happened about 2-3 times last year. Everything starts suddenly with single montgomery gland pain (area around the nipple) . and in few days pain gets stronger, and areola thicker. There is small redness on the skin near areola , about 5mm (not every time), It usually last about 5-10 days and dissapears without any lumps (everything looks normal). Now, before 10 days it stared on the right side, and was passed away, and two days ago it started on the left side, identical symptoms. Aureola is kind of inflamated (but just little darker colour) very painful to toutch and visible swelled a little . Area beneath the nipple is not painful just areola, actually about 50 % of areola, not whole in size. Body temperature is 37 C. What my be cause of this ? I did not have any other health issues related so far..

I had an ingrown hair bump on my areola. After removing the hair, the swelling went down. The area became so irritated, a scab developed. After a day or 2 the outer layer of the scab fell off from showering. I now have a pink/white circle in the spot where the hair bump was. How can I fix this? Will my pigmentation go back to normal? I have dark brown nipples.
