Just showering and noticed some skin sort of peeling off my skin - a bit like it does after a blister fades away? Now I'm dry it's red and raw. I slept in my bra by accident the other day and wonder if the wires dug in and caused something I just didn't notice? I have massive boobs and its on the underside inside of it. A bit worried...
Most likely as you say, irritation caused by rubbing, but I think you need to get it quickly checked out by a GP just in case it's something more serious. It looks sore. Hope you're not too uncomfortable.
so my boob got worse after this and I've since been to the doctors three times. It now looks gross! First time I was given an anti biotic cream and it just got worse. Then penicillin. My doctor thinks it's an ulcer and has referred me to the breast clinic, also because the boob felt a bit lumpy.
Has anyone had an ulcer on their boob before? I'm waiting to see what the clinic day of course but an ulcerating tumour is of course a possibility and a scary one at that...
I had something like that and it was Bowens disease. It's a very low grade skin cancer. I got accused of over exposure to sun, but trust me, my boobs are never bare. I had to put chemotherapy cream on for six weeks, which was quite sore, but it got rid of it.
Since updating I had my appointment at the breast clinic. The doctor thought it was just an ulcer/sore. I kept it covered for a couple more weeks and then it started to heal. The puss left and the skin heeled. Now it's just red and you can sort of feel the scar tissue.
Went back to see the consultant today. Was very much expecting him to say 'Yep that looks like it's healing fine, off you go.'
He checked me over and is fairly confident the 'sore' is within the skin not breast tissue. Nevertheless he's sending me for an ultrasound and will do a biopsy, to check for skin cancer.
I don't know why but I just wasn't expecting that (even following the posts above). I burst into tears. I'd gone on my own today as I just thought it was a formality to tick a box to discharge me.
My friends very young sister just got diagnosed with cancer this week and a very young colleague died of it a couple of weeks ago
I'm rambling. Just really hope it isn't cancer but I am worried the consultant says it's unusual
He also suggested I consider a breast reduction. (I'm a J cup - might have said up thread)
All in all with work being awful this morning it wasn't a great day
Am hoping I get the appointments soon but not while I'm on my previous week away in January
Hiya OP, didn't want to read and run. I'm sure it'll be fine, if he was really worried it would be rushed through. Still a shock if you aren't expecting it I should think. J cup does sound heavy! But obviously it is your decision and if you don't want one then don't have one. Chin up OP, I'm sure he is just ticking boxes and making sure nothing is missed.
