Red mark on breast - has anyone else had this?

I'm 21 weeks and I've got a small red streak on one nork near the nipple - like a tiny zig zag, about pea-sized. Has anyone else had this and is it normal?

I know a red mark on the breast can be a bad sign and I will go to GP with it after the weekend - but - according to my googling blush it doesn't seem like a dangerous one as they seem to appear with lumps/soreness - it's painless and flat. I've also seen that you can get stretch marks on breasts and it does look like that - kind of like a love bite - but just the one by itself?

(Norks are still getting bigger and are starting to tingle and sting and there's a bit of colostrum - sorry if TMI - but that's both of them)

If you can prod it around and there's no pain then I'd agree that its more likely to be a stretch mark than a blocked duct or mastitis (I got a blocked duct when DD was just over a week old and it was really tender) - but keep an eye on it over the weekend and get it checked out if you're at all concerned.

Oh thanks tangle. I think it might be fading which would be good - will watch it.
