I have a lump which started out as a red mark it now feels like a lump and has veins coming out of it, I have a doctors appt on Thursday but really worried about it has anyone ever had anything like this?

Looks like an infection. There appear to be another couple of spots forming down to the base of the breast opposite where your hand is. Could be a staph infection, not serious but can spread so maybe get an earlier appointment as you might need antibiotics.
