Last week a huge black bruise showed up on my boob, just by my nipple.

It's fading, and going through the purple/yellow phase which I know is a good sign.

However, it definitely doesn't feel right. There's kind of a pulling sensation, sometimes it throbs sharply, sometimes a bit tingly. I don't know if I'm just hyper aware of it though. I'm also still BF DD in the night. She's teething at the moment so suckling more than usual.

I saw the doc on Monday. No obvious lump or visible symptoms to worry about. They want me to do a blood test to look for clotting abnormalities.

Should I be pushing for further breast exam based on these symptoms?

I'm 31, no family history of breast cancer.

I wouldn't, sounds fairly innocent to me, assuming you've knocked it somehow and that's the reason for the bruise.
