BRUISE
Can a bruise on your breast show as an abnormality on your mammogram?

Hi there.

If the bruise has an underlying collection of blood clots, then this might show up on the mammogram, but this is rather an exception rather than the rule.  Blood is really not that radio-opaque, meaning, they won't really show up on the film.  Uncommonly, a bruise may be an initial manifestation of more serious conditions underneath the breast, especially if long standing.  The bruise should heal within the next 5-7 days and if this does not, I suggest that you show this to your doctor for evaluation.

Regards and God bless.
