I've got a small pale red splodge on the side of my breast. It's perfectly smooth and maybe only 3-5 mm across. I didn't used to have it and i think it's got a bit bigger (but I wondered if my boobs are just getting bigger and it's stretching, like a pattern on a balloon confused).

Should I be concerned or is it just an age spot or something. See pic (hopefully not too revealing?)

Is it itchy? If so I would get it checked out as soon as you can.

Have you checked your bra? That looks a bit like a mark left by a protruding bra wire.

I had similar and panicked about that type of breast cancer that appears as a flat rash but 4 years later it’s still there and not changed at all, I think it’s just tiny spider veins. I’d pop to the doctor and get it checked then you can forget about it

Thanks all. No, not a proddy bit of bra. Not itchy. Not thread veins....!

I think I'll book a GP appointment

If anyone else has had this type of thing I'd be glad to hear.

I can assure you that this isn't breast cancer. That's not how it presents. It's an 'age spot'.

Thanks @Miljea, that's reassuring! Just so I know, are you an HP, or have you suffered from breast or other cancer?
