Dear Diny45:  Fat necrosis generally presents as a warm hot reddened area on the breast.  It is often the result of injury (even though that might not be remembered).  Without evaluation, we cannot speculate on this particular situation and whether it is fat necrosis or something else.  If you are worried, we recommend a second opinion with a breast specialist (often affiliated with large academic medical center).
