Hmm, yes, I would go to the GP quick as.

I have one like this just by my bikini line. It's like a strawberry birthmark and I'm fairly sure there used to be a mole there.
I showed the Dr and she just said to keep an eye on it and return if it changed at all.
I'd get it checked either way...

Oh,really? Do you know,it's absolutely never concerned me at all.It's just that one of my kids pointed it out to me and asked me what it was.Is it really something to be worried about?

It's probably best to have it looked at, but it could just be a Campbell de Morgan spot. I have a fair few of them on my tummy and chest and they are harmless and nothing to worry about.

i have that too on my boob! it is small the size of a spot but red and sticks out a little!

bethoo Fri 05-Sep-08 12:26:57

but i am only 31 and it says they appear at 40+! how depressing. may mention it to mw as could be hormonal.

bethoo, I got my first CdeM spot well before 40, I'm only 41 now and I've had them for more than a decade I'm sure.

cutekids Fri 05-Sep-08 12:37:56

Well I turned 40 this year...oh the joys of getting older!

bethoo Fri 05-Sep-08 12:38:40

i only noticed mine as my ds would try and pick it off whilst bf!

Hmm. I didn't realise this would be anything to worry about, either. I've had one on my breast (on the areola) for nearly 2 years. Not dead, yet, and it hasn't spread! I assumed it was a blood blister, but it never went away.

Ooo, ive got one of those CdeM spots too - but im only 24 shock

I've got something on my leg like this although this is raised and bright red .. it's like a blood blister containing proper blood but it's been there a couple of years

is this one of them, or something else?

I must admit it pissed me off and I'd like it removed if possible (particularly when shaving)

I have some of these on my chest and boobs, and have done for years. My mum has some too, so I've never worried about them.

If any of you find a red blood blister on your breast PLEASE insist on a mammogram and any other appropriate screening - even if you doctor tells you it is nothing. I was told by doctors, nurses, radiologists, dermatologists that this was nothing to worry about and that it was most likely a bug bite. A mammogram only revealed an unrelated 0.8 cm lobular cancer. I will save you the details but it wasn't until surgery that they figured out that I also had invasive lobular cancer, invasive ductal cancer, and ductal cancer in situ. It's very likely that the blood blister was caused by the ductal cancer.

I have one of these on my breast for months never even gave it a thought, are they related to breast cancer?

Passmethecrisps Sun 19-Jul-15 19:56:01

I have these all over my body - one on my boob, an eyelid, back of knee and other places where they come and go.

I got the one on the back of my knee checked and was told it was a cherry hemangioma.
